The Scottish Association for Children with Heart Disorders was registered as a new charity in Scotland in 2004, prior to then we were part of a national charity (Association for Children with Heart Disorders). We offer support and understanding in everyday care and welfare to parents and families of children with heart disorders. The Objectives of The Association are: To advance the education of the public about the problems experienced by children and young adults with congenital heart conditions and their families. To relieve the suffering and distress, and promote the welfare of children and young adults with congenital heart conditions in particular by the support of parents and families, so that their conditions of life may be improved. We seek to: Improve facilities for children and young adults at heart units and in hospitals throughout Scotland. Maintain the standard of improvements as new techniques develop and to foster and encourage research into heart disorders and techniques. To help achieve this we: Raise funds and invite and receive contributions to help purchase essential specialised equipment that is not always forthcoming through normal National Health Service channels. There are seven local / area branches and a Young Adults Group. Monies raised at Branch level through subscription, donation and fund raising are transferred to a central account and administered by the Management Committee. All of our Office Bearers, Committee Members, Members and Friends work as volunteers, so we are able to keep expenses to an absolute minimum and direct the money to where it can best benefit our heart children
