Steering Groups

Share your experience to shape the future for children with heart conditions


We want to hear from:
Young people with heart conditions (you should be ages 10-25 and at any stage of your heart journey).

Professionals in the cardiac sectors (you could be a nurse, radiographer, outreach professional, care worker, play specialist, consultant or any healthcare professional supporting paediatric cardiac services).

Carers (you could be a parent, carer, sibling, or friend with experience caring for children with heart conditions

What does a steering group do?
Steering group members are the critical supportive friends of CHF that will bring experience and perspective to enhance the work we do, alongside providing knowledge and insight to support us in the delivery of our mission. Steering group members will contribute to the development of our new business plan, programming, and the support we can offer children with heart conditions, their families and carers nationwide. As a steering group member there is no personal liability associated with joining.

What does being a steering group member mean?
This is a volunteer position that is open to all.
You will need to be able to commit to four meetings per year- at least one of which will be in person and CHF will cover travel expenses
