Family Support

Practical support for families of children and young people with heart disease.

Family Support

Children’s Heartbeat Trust aim to provide effective, practical support to families of children and young people with heart disease in a variety of practical ways…

There are 10 local family support groups spread throughout Northern Ireland, as well as a seperate Teen’s programme and Teen’s parents group. These groups are set up to provide you with a contact in your local area. All the group organisers are parents who have had a child with heart disease and are happy to have a chat or a coffee with other parents who may need support or simply just someone to listen.

There are also caravans available for families to use in Newcastle and Ballycastle. Look under Caravans for information on how to book a week or weekend.
