We know what life is like living with a childhood heart condition.  We have been providing support services to children with heart conditions and their families since 1984.

The needs of those with a childhood heart condition are different from the needs of those who acquire heart disease later in life.  Whilst there are other organisations that focus on promoting healthy living and the prevention of heart disease acquired through lifestyle choice, Heart Kids’ focus is on those who are living with a childhood heart condition that has existed from conception or as a result of rheumatic fever, cardiomyopathy, or Kawasaki disease.  We are the only organisation in New Zealand dedicated to supporting all those affected by a childhood heart condition.

HeartKids' primary goal is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with childhood heart conditions. Our mission is to provide life long support for all affected by the world's most common birth defect or heart disease acquired during childhood.

We're here to help every step of the heart journey - from when it is diagnosed through childhood, the teenage years and into adulthood.

Our practical and emotional support is vital for those affected, helping them cope with the day-to-day challenges of living with a childhood heart condition.
