Our mission is to make a difference to the lives of heart children and their families.
At ECHO, we know that discovering your child has a potentially life threatening heart condition is one of the hardest things any parent can hear. Many families find it difficult to cope and welcome additional support, which is why ECHO exists.
To find out what we achieved during 2016 please read our ECHO-impact-report-2016
We want to have an even greater impact and have committed to helping even more families over the next year.
In spite of being a small charity, we aim to have a big impact and are committed to making ambitious changes. We will always work with members to provide the service they need and value the relationships we have with them.
Streamlining our monitoring and evaluation capacity in order to understand our impact and create a sustainable framework to apply in the future.
Maintaining and strengthening levels of volunteer support in local communities and throughout the peripheral hospital network.
Developing our fundraising capabilities to include more trusts & foundations, companies and online sales.
Raising our profile by increasing the work we do with our patrons and friends of ECHO.
Enabling a strong collective voice for all members and CHD families, e.g. setting up focus groups for parents and teenagers.
Thank you to our supporters for helping us to achieve everything we have so far – we need your support going forwards.
