Become a link in our Heart Chain



Our new awareness campaign highlights that over 200 children are born each year with a congenital heart defect and many of these children will have to face open heart surgery and treatment for their complex conditions.  It’s not always obvious to the general public that a baby or a child has a complex heart defect as there can be few physical symptoms, but it is a very serious illness that affects hundreds of families across Northern Ireland.  We work to support these children, young people and their families.
