Reader panel

Can you help us to keep informing young people and families about life with half a working heart?

We need you to help us to maintain and develop our medical and lifestyle information by volunteering to become a reviewer on our Youth Reader Panel. It would only take a few hours a year and you can do it from home in your PJ’s (although we would also hope to get together once a year to discuss any issues, share ideas and put faces to names).

We are looking for lots of young people with different backgrounds and experiences and no previous knowledge is required. We’ll send you our information booklets before they are sent off to be published and will ask for your feedback on the content, tone, layout, and structure of the publications.

Your help would really help LHM continue supporting young people and their families through every step of their half a heart journey. 

If you are interested please contact us or call 0121 455 8982 to have a quick chat with Deb, LHM’s Design and Information Administrator.

    A few weeks ago, we shared a news article about John and Kate Carlton who have been fundraising for Little Hearts Matter. This family’s amazing support doesn’t stop there, as their 9 year old daughter May also arranged for her school to take part in a non-uniform day for Little Hearts Matter. She put together a PowerPoint presentation and spoke to her Headteacher who agreed to hold a fundraising day for LHM.

    Just look at how many donations were received on the day – well done May, you’re a star! ❤️ To get involved and register your fundraising, click here: www.lhm.org.uk/get-involved/fundraising/register-your-fundraising/

    Youth Support

    There are young people living with half a heart across the country, many aged between 11 and 18. It is massively important for all of these brave young people to have access to the care, guidance and support they need – allowing them to live life to its full potential that their heart will allow.

    Lexie runs our Youth Services, supporting our youth members in a variety of ways, throughout their half a heart journey. These young members are invited to Activity Weekends and Education Days where they will explore their heart condition and seek solutions to the challenges that having half a heart brings. They will also have an opportunity to meet with other young members, online and in person, making friendships and helping them feel less alone.

    Did you know our youth members also consist of siblings? We know it can be a tough road for them too, so they also have a chance to chat with each other for support from people their age that truly understand. You can find out more about our Youth Services by clicking here www.lhm.org.uk/youth-zone/
