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.

    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.
