Heartline supports children with heart disorders and their families, whatever the condition, wherever it is treated. We provide an online Forum for parents to privately discuss issues between themselves.
We publish Heart Children - a practical handbook for parents, which offers support, information and advice from prenatal diagnosis, through diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and the many social and educational problems a heart condition can cause.
Heartline has two caravans to provide holidays for hard- pressed parents and their children who might not otherwise be able to take a break.
We provide weekend activity breaks for heart children and, separately, their siblings to help them gain independence and physical confidence.
We have a membership of over 3000 Families to whom we provide this support.
Hundreds benefit from wetsuits each year, 24 children take part in our carefully supervised activity weekends, potentially sixty families may enjoy a holiday in our caravans. These all give rise to heart warming testimonials on the difference it has made to each Family’s well being.
Regular newsletters and magazines keep members in touch, and social media provides immediate practical advice and support and has proved hugely useful to many families.
