The Somerville Foundation Team

A dedicated team, fighting to improve the lives of CHD patients

At The Somerville Foundation, we are proud to have an extraordinary team of people who commit their time, wisdom and skills to help heal broken hearts.

Their contributions – both individually and collectively – support young people and adults born with heart conditions to live longer, full and happy lives.
