Where your money goes.

Research that saves lives
A national support network
A wealth of help and advice
The UK’s first Congenital Heart Research Centre
Financial support
Campaigning for better services & support

In 2017, we were delighted to receive a donation of £6,000 from Suffolk Freemasons. The Freemasons were interested to hear about the work we do to support congenital heart patients and in particular about grant-funded Coaguchek machines. The £6,000 they donated will help to give grants to patients who need to check their INR levels at home, for a coaguchek machine from Roche Diagnostics.

With your help, we’ve helped fund new and improved treatments for congenital heart disease. we opened the UK’s first dedicated Congenital Heart Research Centre. we’ve organised receptions at the House of Lords and House of Commons, a film première, concerts, parachute jumps, marathon runs, annual sponsored walks and masquerade balls. we ensure that adult CHD patients enjoy access to every opportunity, are free from discrimination, and are fully supported throughout their lives. we’ve staged annual conferences, regional patient information days and workshops throughout the UK. we’ve published a range of leaflets for CHD patients on a wide-range of topics. we’ve launched a Freephone patient helpline to provide practical advice, a listening ear, and emotional reassurance at times of stress. we’ve created online networks where congenital heart patients can connect with each other. we successfully applied for a Comic Relief grant to help develop mental health support services. we’ve contributed to adult congenital heart disease nurse training days and taken part in various study days and conferences for medical and health professionals. we’ve established a benevolent fund for members who are in financial hardship. we’ve organised residential weekends and outward bound holidays for teenagers and adults, providing congenital heart patients with the opportunity to meet and gain support from each other.

Just think what else we could do if you donate, fundraise or volunteer for us.
