Upcoming Events

We run our popular family events throughout the year and really enjoy keeping in touch with existing heart families as well as meeting families who are new to CHT.

Check out our upcoming regional events below and visit our groups page for details of local events and activities near you.


Paediatric First Aid

We have not one but two upcoming Paediatric First Aid Courses taking place in Enniskillen and Antrim. This is a fully certified 1 day course and has been heavily subsidised to £10pp for all our lovely heart families over the age of 16. The feedback from this course has been fantastic with families describing the course as “Excellent hands on training, gave us the knowledge and confidence to be able to perform first aid if needed.” Due to the nature of the training, spaces on the course are limited so if you would like to take part please don’t hesitate to book your space by emailing cathy@childrensheartbeattrust.org or call 07436589480.

Summer Fun Days – Save the date!

Our Family events are a great way to meet other heart families from Northern Ireland whilst enjoying some time out as a family. Each of our events are free to heart families and we love meeting some new faces so please don’t hesitate to book a place and join in on the fun!

This year our Summer Family Fun Days are on Saturday 30th June and Saturday 4th August.

Watch this space for more details coming soon….

Bereaved Families

Some of our heart families have sadly had a heart warrior that has passed away. If you have lost a child to congenital heart disease, we would like to offer emotional and practical support to you and your family but to do so we need your help. We want to know what you would find supportive so we can work on developing a helpful support service for bereaved heart families. We are holding an afternoon tea on Sunday 20th May at Malone House in Belfast and would like to invite bereaved heart parents to come along, get to know some other families that can relate to how you are feeling and help us to support you. Booking is essential, please contact cathy@childrensheartbeattrust.org for more info.
