Every day, Heart Kids NZ touches the lives of heart children and their families by providing them with practical, emotional and psychosocial services - be it an information brochure, specialist equipment, leadership development for heart youth and adults, a camping experience, an opportunity to connect with other families, a hot meal for hospital-bound families, or just a shoulder to cry on. Our support is vital for those affected, helping them cope with the lifelong challenges of living with a childhood heart disease.

Our 18 affiliated branches are here to provide support services to heart children and families when they return home from hospital. These branches are run by volunteers, who are parents and caregivers of children with heart conditions. We have a good understanding of the journey you are travelling and are passionate about helping others with similar needs.

In addition to providing individual support, our branches organise family days, coffee mornings, information evenings and other opportunities for you to meet other heart families, share experiences, off-load problems or just have some fun together. To find a branch in your area, go to Local Branches tab on our website.
