Events and Escapes

HeartKids understand the importance of peer support, being surrounded by staff, volunteers and families who understand the journey that heart kids face. We have created a strong events program including; playgroup, coffee mornings, annual Christmas parties both in Sydney and across NSW and extend to our family camps providing a strong circle of support.

Play Group

Play group is an informal session where mums, dads, grandparents, caregivers, children and babies meet up in a relaxed and friendly environment. The adults stay to interact and most importantly the kids get to have some fun.

Sydney Play group is run during school terms, every Wednesday at Castle Hill.

Canberra Play Group is held fortnightly on Friday in Ainslie

Newcastle/Hunter Play Group is held monthly on Friday

HeartKids community enable us to connect with other parents in similar positions. It was extremely valuable particularly for me who in contrast had a very lonely experience during my child’s first surgery whilst living overseas.”
