Welcome to the Young at Heart Website


Young at Heart is a registered charity set up in 1982 to offer help and support to families of babies and children diagnosed with heart defects. All these children and their families have spent many weeks/months in hospital undergoing major heart surgery. Some children have had numerous operations throughout their short lives. Sadly, some do not survive and for others their only hope is a heart transplant.

 
YaH provides a support line and regular ward visits for parents during their time in hospital with their sick child and it works closely with the Heart Unit at the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Its aim is to bring the families together at social events, where they can meet with other families, share experiences and the children make new friends. The children love the social events, they have been through a lot and enjoy being with other children who also have `special hearts’.

 
The website offers a wide variety of information which includes our latest news and events, family support advice, medical information sheets, details of how money is raised and donated. There is also the opportunity to become a member or a Trustee - for free - using the online forms. If you require any further information or have a question or comment regarding any aspect of Young at Heart then please get in touch.
