HeartsLocal (Regional Program)

Regional staff and volunteer representatives throughout NSW and ACT provide a comprehensive outreach support program for families via face-to-face contact, social activities and support initiatives such as the HeartsLocal resource,  a detailed information pack.

With the generous support of Newcastle Permanent Charitable Foundation we have created a resource to make the experience of heart families travelling to hospital a little less daunting.

The booklet covers just about everything you need to take into consideration when planning your trip – from what to pack, emotionally preparing your children, right down to where to park when you arrive at the hospital.

You will find family stories as well as tips and advice from heart families who have walked the path before you.
