Chuf’s vision is to support pioneering services that will positively impact heart families, inspire hope and enable Heart Heroes to reach their full potential.

This is achieved by supporting the children and families who receive treatment by the Children’s Heart Unit based at Freeman Hospital and the many other hospitals providing care for cardiac patients throughout the North East.   We raise vital funds for large and small pieces of equipment, facilities, aftercare, salaries and research. Chuf’s charitable activities go far beyond that of providing medical equipment and personnel; the charity provides holistic care to children and their families by providing services and facilities that allow heart children to develop their skills and mature as any healthy child normally would. Chuf supports pioneering research and services that contributes to heart heroes’ ability to achieve their full potential.
