Get involved and help us make a difference

Discovering your child has a potentially life threatening heart condition is one of the hardest things any parent can hear.

Children with heart conditions often face an uncertain future, where medical tests and treatment become normality. Many families find it difficult to cope and welcome additional support – which is where ECHO comes in.

Your support makes our work possible.
