We are a small team here at Children’s Heartbeat Trust but our passion for working with heart families across Northern Ireland is HUGE and we are very proud of the positive impact our work has.
Sarah is our Chief Executive. She has been instrumental in developing the charity from the volunteer led organisation to where we are today.
Cathy is one of our family support workers with a focus on families and the hospital. You can regularly find her on Clark Clinic or out and about with our families.
Lynn is our fundraising officer with responsibility for raising vital funds for the charity through our amazing volunteer fundraisers and our corporate partners.
Alison looks after our office and keeps us all up to date with everything going on. If you get the chance to phone the office its Alison who you usually end up talking to.
Katherine is our Interim CEO. She is looking after the whole charity while Sarah is away.
David is one of our family support workers with a focus on our young people. He has responsibilities over Family Support Groups and Youth Services.
Gareth is delighted to join the Children’s Heartbeat Trust team as Interim Fundraising Officer and will be working with the charity until December 2018 to help raise vital funds for our services alongside local fundraisers and corporate partners.
We have a committed Board of Directors who are responsible in law for the overall governance of the charity. Together they bring a wealth of experience and knowledge from different backgrounds including clinical, family experience of CHD and professional expertise. All our Directors are volunteers – giving up their time and expertise for free.
As key members of the CHT Team, the Board work behind the scenes to achieve our mission, set strategic direction and ensure we are financially sound and compliant with relevant legislation.
