Children’s Heart Surgery Fund: Support Hearts For Life and Make a Difference Forever
Your generosity can really mean the world to children and adults with congenital heart disease across Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. Whatever you can give will make a huge difference!
Based at the Leeds Children’s Hospital, Children’s Heart Surgery Fund covers the regions of Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. Around 450 babies, children and adults from these regions need open heart surgery every year. We aim to ensure these patients have the best possible care and to help their families in whatever way needed during their stay in hospital. Our work is overseen by a board of Trustees – made up of clinical staff, parents and business leaders.
We raise money to help the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit at the General Infirmary provide superb care for its patients and their families, but our work doesn’t stop there. More than 40% of the patients who have an operation will need long-term care, and each year 17,500 babies, children and adults pass through the unit.
Working alongside the Leeds Congenital Heart Unit at Leeds General Infirmary, we are funded by generous donations from the general public, our corporate supporters and by the amazing efforts of our fundraisers. We’re only able to help because of your support, thank you.
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.
CHSF are wholly funded by your donations, and because of YOU we are able to help over 17,000 babies, children and adults living with congenital heart disease (CHD) each year. Thanks to you, your work colleagues, child’s school, local community, family and friends, CHSF can support hearts for life. Please continue to fundraise and spread our vital message.

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.
