Help & Advice

Welcome to our Help & Advice pages where you will find lots of information for those Born with a Heart Condition.

Living with and Managing Your Heart Condition can bring up lots of questions around your Physical Health, and Emotional and Mental Health, which we hope we can help to address and answer. 

Visit the relevant areas using the menu on the left to access reports, articles and stories and post your own questions in our FAQs section.
If you are caring for a GUCH or are a GUCH caring for someone else then our Carers section may hold information of use to you. As well as links to useful organisations there is also a downloadable guide to carers’ rights and benefits, produced by Carers UK.

There may come a time in your life when you are in need of Financial Help but have you thought to ask The Somerville Foundation for assistance? We have a range of funds available to members to relieve the financial burden they may find themselves under. 

In Resources you can find a full page with links to view or download our information leaflets, which give help & advice on living with a heart condition. There you will also find details of our recognised Specialist Centres, the NHS GUCH Guide and Useful Links to other organisations, including our International Directory.
