About HeartKids Wellington

HeartKids

Heart Kids Wellington looks after over 400 families in the Wairarapa, Hutt, Wellington and Kapiti Coast area. Our fabulous committee is made up of parents, friends and young adults. We are so proud to have three young heart adults on our committee which means we feel we are really able to help our families!

We hold regular family and youth gatherings, meetings and morning teas. These are for our families to socialise with peers and meet others who have the same unique issues around having a heart child in their family.

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.
