How We Help
HeartKids is the compass to help navigate the lifetime journey of the 64,000 Australian children, teens and adults affected by congenital/childhood heart disease. Our aim is to help them - and their families - to lead the most fulfilling life possible and to reach their personal goals.
We are the voice for all people impacted by congenital/childhood heart disease - the largest cause of infant death in Australia.
HeartKids work is outcome-focused and demonstrates real impact for families impacted by congenital/childhood heart disease, and for the community. Our work is focused on our four pillars of Advocacy, Information, Research and Support.
We provide dedicated support services and information for parents, young people, adults and Heart Angel families to provide guidance and support through the lifetime journey.
