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!

    One of our wonderful members Daniela shares her feelings of when she first learnt that her son had only half a heart...

    "It was one of the most difficult and uncertain times in our lives but it was also helpful knowing that others could understand what we were going through and that we had prepared ourselves and done everything we needed to do to understand what was going to happen to Oscar in surgery."

    “We are forever grateful for LHM for everything they have assisted us with, for what they have informed us about, and for the ongoing support we receive. We really couldn’t do this journey without the charity.”

    A huge thank you to Daniela for sharing your half-a-heart journey with us, we'd love for you to read the full story here: bit.ly/2QY5Bcp
