Established in 1988, the Children's Heart Surgery Fund is a self-funded charity providing support for children and adults born with Congenital Heart Defects and their families. CHSF provides valuable equipment, resources and research, as well as a support service for both the children and their families along the way.

Based at the Leeds General Infirmary, CHSF covers the regions of Yorkshire, Humberside and North Lincolnshire. We are the only charity specialised in Congenital Heart Disease able to support families in this area.

Twelve children are born in the UK with a Congenital Heart Defect every day. Around 400 children from the three regions need open heart surgery every year.More than 40% of the children who have an operation will need long-term care and each year 10,000 children pass through the unit. We support them every step of the way - from womb to adulthood.
