Heart Angel Care Packs

HeartKids has recently developed an information and support pack for those who have recently experienced the death of a loved one from congenital/childhood heart disease. The pack includes two books that explore the theme of bereavement, offer coping strategies and share the experiences of other bereaved families.

  • The Little Book of Loss and Grief and Beyond Words: Grieving when your Child has Died
  • Information about how we can continue to support you and those close to you
  • A memory candle

If you’d like us to send you one of these packs or find out more about them, you or a family member can contact our support team on 1800 432 785 or 

You can also speak with your hospital social worker and ask them to contact us on your behalf.

Our Support Team has put together a collection of books and resources on grief and loss that you can borrow for free, for as long as you like. Contact us on (02) 9460 7450 or email us on
