Summing It Up

Summing It Up is a Little Hearts Matter initiative to help raise awareness of the needs of the needs of a child with a heart condition in school.

Over the past ten years the LHM team have worked to create a tool box of information that parents and teachers can use to gain a greater understanding of the needs of a child  with a single ventricle heart condition in school. Age appropriate booklets, advice about accessing Healthcare Plans, added support for educational needs as well as individual advice and support have been welcomed by families throughout the country. However, families have expressed a need for a bit more help ensuring that school teams really understand their child’s heart condition.

The Summing It Up project is a collection of new ways to raise a greater awareness with teachers, school staff and ultimately other pupils, helping to ensure that children with half a heart achieve their full potential.

The Summing It Up project includes a fantastic schools fundraising pack which is aimed specifically at fundraising in schools. Find the pack and other resources here.

    "Niamh's not feeling 100% today, I asked her if she'd be more comfortable in pyjamas than Jigzy but bless her heart she said "I like to wear this top because it reminds me of the special people like doctors and nurses and Little Hearts who all make me feel better when I don't feel good, so when I wear Jigzy I always smile and it makes me feel better. "Hooray for Jigzy 🥰 xxx"

    And hooray for children living with half a working heart today, just like Niamh here.

    Please share ❤️👇
