British Heart Foundation

The aim of the British Heart foundation is to play a leading role in the fight against heart diseas so that it is no longer a major cause of disability and premature death.

Cardiac Risk In The Young

CRY was founded in 1995 by Alison Cox. For four years, the head office was based in a private home but as the charity grew, so did its need for more staff, presentation materials, printing equipment and storage facilities. CRY also needed space in which to counsel families and meet people who could help promote and support the work of a new charity. Being based in a private home meant that CRY escaped the majority of costs normally associated with the running of an office. However thanks to the incredible efforts of our fund raisers the charity was finally able to afford the move into a warehouse unit on a small industrial estate. Progress!

We are a voluntary organisation set up to offer help and support to children with heart disorders and their families regardless of how slight or severe the condition may be.
How can we help?
Having a baby or child with a heart disorder is very stressful, particularly at the time of diagnosis, before surgery and postoperatively. No matter how helpful and supportive hospital staff are, as parents you will always have worries and unanswered questions. It may be helpful to talk to another parent who has experienced a similar situation and understands how you feel.
