Welcome to Little Hearts Matter

We are a national UK charity offering help to anyone affected by the diagnosis of single ventricle heart condition.

From initial antenatal diagnosis, through treatments and into life at home, the charity works with children, young adults and families to reduce the isolation, fear and lack of understanding created when a child is diagnosed as having half a working heart.

    Winner of the My Heart Award
    Jasper has been a great participant in many LHM youth events. He is 13 years old and had Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. Recently Jasper started to recognise changes in his energy and pushed for appointments to be made so that he could either get more support or understand what was happening better. Despite having issues with needles and hospitals Jasper really took part in his appointments and the discussions as well as welcoming further treatment after taking the time to really process what was happening. Jasper’s Cardiac Nurse specialist added that, ‘Jasper demonstrated exceptional courage and maturity to initiate conversations with his mother about how his symptoms had worsened’. He really approached this in such a mature manner so absolutely deserves the My Heart Award.

    We have a limited number of places left in some fantastic fundraising events in 2019, our 25th Anniversary year.

    If this is the year you want to take on half a marathon for children with half a heart, then you’re in luck! We have spaces in 2 fantastic events – The iconic Great North Run which has sold out to the public (visit bit.ly/lhmgnr for info) and the Great Birmingham Run (bit.ly/lhmrun for more info)

    Or if cycling is more your thing, now is the time to secure one of our last 2 places in the London to Brighton Cycle and complete our team of 25 cyclists for 25 years. We’re so close to having a full team!
