About Us

Welcome to the Hearts of Hope Australia website. We are a voluntary support organisation that was set up in 2002 by a group of parents with children born with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.

We offer non-medical support to all families with a child born with a heart condition that cannot be cured through medical intervention. This includes, but is not limited to, single ventricle anomalies such as Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome.

To help achieve our aims, and to provide better support to these children and their families, Hearts of Hope Australia was incorporated as a non-profit company in August 2004. We are a Health Promotion Charity and have Deductible Gift Recipient endorsement from the Australian Taxation Office. Heart of Hope Australia is a national organisation.

The content presented on this website and the information provided by our members is published with the intention to support, and not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient and their doctor.

Hearts of Hope does not set out to provide medical advice. However, staying up to date with current developments in the medical world is important to families that have children with congenital heart disorders. Discussing surgeries, medication, treatment options and our own personal experiences can help carers ask the 'right' questions of the medical professionals that we rely on to look after the health of our children.
