The Difference We Make

Here is a selection of facts and figures about the support we have been able to offer our heart families in last year due to the efforts of our fabulous fundraisers.

Children’s Heartbeat Trust

200

CHD is the most common birth defect in children born in NI with on average 200 babies per year born with one or more heart conditions.

Heart Family Focused

Over £2,450,000 of social value was created from our work in 2015-16.

1/3

1/3 of children born with CHD will face open heart surgery throughout their lives.

£1 > £8

For every £1 invested in the charity, we create a social value of approximately £8!
