Our vision is to support hearts for life and our mission is to support the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit in becoming a world class centre of excellence – by providing the funding and resources needed to care for a patient’s heart, mind, family and future.

We provide life-saving medical equipment for the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit, parent accommodation for families and vital ward resources. We also fund staff training, scientific research and new clinical roles. Our board of trustees meets regularly to review major requests for funding, and the board includes pioneering medical experts from the Heart Unit.

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we’ve been able to approve funding for projects totalling millions of pounds in recent years. From funding cutting edge equipment to paying for the fish tank on the ward, we’re always on the lookout for ways we can help improve the lives of our heart patients
