The Somerville Foundation is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to supporting young people and adults born with all forms of heart conditions, known as Congenital Heart Disease (or CHD).

We provide support, advocacy, communication, and a community for those we are here to help. We also campaign for their rights to receive excellent medical care to enable them to lead happy, healthy, and longer lives.
