Information & Support
1800 432 785
The HeartKids Helpline provides support and guidance for anyone affected by congenital heart disease.
The Helpline is available during business hours. For outside business hours please submit an online query by clicking here.
HeartKids can assist with information about your hospital stay, for example information on accommodation options, meals, public transport and parking.
You can find this on a searchable Google Map by clicking here.
We can provide details and referrals to hospital services such as social workers, occupational therapists, and speech pathologists, if available.
Most valuable to our families during the crucial time of surgery are our HeartKids Support Team. Team Members are often ‘heart mums’ and understand what families are experiencing during hospital stays.
As well as offering support to families, HeartKids aims to increase awareness in the general community about the high incidence of congenital heart defects and its ongoing consequences.
Please contact HeartKids in your state if you are visiting one of the children’s hospitals, or if you require support.
