*NEW LHM Youth Council coming in 2020

We’re bringing back the Little Hearts Matter youth council in 2020!

The LHM youth council is an amazing way to make sure we as a charity make sure the youth member’s voice, your voice is the one that leads the way. To do this we are looking to recruit 6 LHM youth members aged 11 (secondary school aged) to 18 years old that were willing to commit to a long term role as a LHM youth councillor.

 

So what does someone in the youth council do?

A member of the youth council represents the voice of the young people we support, young people like you! This is a very important role so the people we are looking for will need to be dedicated and want to make a positive difference. This is a long-term position.

You will take part in many things including……

  • Attending quarterly virtual meetings to discuss any points of business or new ideas.

  • Work closely with council members and Lexie to ensure the support and info is what the youth members want and need.

  • Ensuring that LHM youth services are reaching their full potential.

  • Reviewing any new publications, website content or other information for support.

  • Communicating with other LHM youth members to see what new ideas can be brought forward.

If you are interested email Lexie on [email protected] by Friday 20th December 2019.
The new youth council will be announced by Monday 6th January 2020.

    In 1994 ‘Left Heart Matters’ was a team of volunteers, supporting families whose children had a life-threatening diagnosis of Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. At the time, Birmingham Children's Hospital and Charity was the only centre treating for this rare condition.

    LHM Lock-down Look-back...

    One of our main tasks during the Covid crisis has been creating new activities and resources for our younger members, particularly those aged under 11 living with a single ventricle heart.

    In March we launched our new 'children's activities' section of the website, providing fun and creative ideas to help keep the younger ones entertained, it's still available here: bit.ly/2O26wpl

    We have also worked on digital events, bringing the younger members together through a safe and fun online environment. This included a children's party hosted by Emilia, sister to LHM's youth leader Lexie and owner of Bespoke Kidz Partiez.

    Thanks to Emilia and her helper 😉 the party went down a treat and the children had so much fun. We received some wonderful feedback including this message from LHM parent member Lauren "Thank you for Niamh's certificate, she was so excited to receive it this morning 😊 she had such a wonderful time at the party last weekend, thank you for organising such a fab event 😃 we hope you're all keeping safe and well ❤️ xxx"

    This is why we do it. It's been a challenging few months for our team, but the journey continues and LHM is doing everything we can to keep our members connected and supported.
