Youth Forum

The Little Hearts Matter Youth Forum is made up of young members and their siblings aged 11-24, and they help LHM decide what services and support we should be offering our Youth Members.

You may have heard about our past youth councils which were great, we are however looking for the future and wanted to find a way to hear the voices of more of our youth members and their siblings. Hence the new YOUTH FORUM!

Every 6 months LHM will be inviting 5 members of all ages and locations to be part of the youth forum for a term of 6 months. Even though this is by invitation you are more than welcome to volunteer and we can see what we can do.

The Youth Forum will have regular meetings on Skype, as well as meeting up during the Open Day to chat to young members and plan what they’d like to do for their term of 6 months. The Youth Forum will continue to do a lot of interesting and exciting things like the youth council did; such as going to the Houses of Parliament, going on the radio, creating an information DVD about life with half a heart and ensuring that they believe their peers (the youth members) are represented and supported in the correct way!

If you’d like to find out more, or get involved with the Youth Forum then get in touch!

    2 weeks on from our initial release of the ‘Wrap a Blanket’ video and we have reached over twenty five thousand people so far. An incredible amount of awareness has been raised. We have also filled our first blanket on the Visufund page, thank you so much to everyone for making this happen!

    But to support every heart-family, we are going to need to fill even more blankets. We are confident in you, our generous supporters, to help us reach our goal of filling 3 blankets by Christmas.

    In 2020, as many as 550 new families will receive the life changing news that their baby has only half a working heart. They will all feel frightened, isolated and overwhelmed with new information.

    Help us to support them with this devastating news and to feel part of the LHM family. The half-a-heart journey truly is a rollercoaster, but we are here for these incredibly brave families every step of the way.

    To be able to support all of the heart-families out there, we need your generosity this Christmas.

    So please, make a donation to our Visufund page by clicking here: visufund.co.uk/lhm-wrap-a-blanket-2,

    Don’t forget that every share counts, thank you ❤
