Isle of Man
We have a new support group who would like to bring together families on the island who are cared for by the team from Alder Hey, either in Liverpool or at Nobles hospital. Please check out their Facebook page and contact Kara Lee
Please email us if you would like more information about any of the branches.
The Association is but one of several children’s heart groups which come under the umbrella of the Children’s Heart Federation (CHF). See their website at www.chfed.org.uk for more information about the group. If you live outside the North West and North Wales the CHF might help you to get in touch with heart families near you.
If you think you would think you would like to start a CHA support group in your area, or if you just get together as a group with other parents, please do get in touch.
