Children’s Heart Surgery Fund is an award winning charity, providing support for children and adults born with Congenital Heart Defects and their families. CHSF provides valuable equipment, resources and research, as well as providing a support service for both the children and their families along the way.
Based at the Leeds General Infirmary, CHSF covers the regions of Yorkshire, Humberside and North Lincolnshire. Around 400 children from these regions need open heart surgery every year. We aim to ensure these children have the best possible chance of survival and to help their families in whatever way needed during their stay in hospital.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we’ve been able to approve funding for projects totalling millions of pounds in the last few 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 young heart patients.
