Hearts Together Living With CHD
Future Inn Bristol 11th May 2024
This is our annual event for young people and adults born with a heart condition to come together and meet others who have ACHD. Attendees can listen to talks from healthcare and industry professionals, with a focus on wellbeing, social interaction and peer support – bringing congenital hearts together from all over the country.
The event is subsidised as part of our service offering to those signed up to Somerville Heart Foundation. In order to attend, you will need to be signed up as either a Friend, Supporter or Patron. Sign up to Somerville Heart Foundation here.
Yes you can, if your partner/friend will be attending the conference with you they will need to join (it’s free) to obtain the discounted rate. If they do not wish to join they will need to pay a Delegate rate for non-members place (£38.75 incl. fees).
While the conference is open to both young people and adults, the content of the materials and talks is primarily tailored towards an adult audience. It’s recommended to use discretion when deciding if the conference is appropriate for your child. Regrettably, the venue does not offer any childcare facilities.
One of the benefits of joining us as a Supporter / Patron is a free place at the Conference
A delegate place costs us £36pp + fees and we are offering to ‘Friends’ at the subsidised rate of £18pp plus booking fee – click here to book!
We understand the cost of attending has usually been fully subsidised but this is not something we can continue to offer. We, as many other charities, have suffered a loss of income as a result of the pandemic. If as a Supporter you feel able to pay for your ticket, this helps us to provide more support to more people
Supporters and Patrons have been emailed a unique code to book. If you have not received this code please contact the office prior to booking.
We are seeking volunteers (preferably with their own equipment) to help us with recording the main event
We are not currently able to live stream but will try to record some of the main talks.
