Support we offer

Little Hearts Matter is here to support young people through every step of their half a heart journey. We’re here to help you learn more about your heart condition, how it affects your everyday life and how to take steps towards independence.

We provide:

  • Support and information through our support line, email and social media.
  • Events to help you learn more about your heart condition.
  • Information booklets to help you learn about all the medical stuff.
  • Activity weekends so that you can meet others in a similar situation and have lots of fun!
  • Putting you in touch with other Youth Members so that you can start to make friends with others like you.
  • Help with lifestyle issues including DLA, PIP, education, employment, sports and exercise, sex and relationships, drugs and alcohol.

To become a LHM Youth Member you can register through the website – it’s free to join and means that you can access all of the support offered above.

    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 ❤
