Branch Network / Catch Ups

To enable families to offer support to each other in their local community, HeartKids has established a number of branches within Victoria and Tasmania.  Each branch has a co-ordinator who is happy to receive a call from you.  Where possible, the co-ordinator may arrange regular catch-ups and other activities.  The branch catch-ups are advertised on our Events Calendar

Our Branch Support Contacts

If a branch does not exist near your home, please contact Sherrie McDonald M: 0431 544 510 or email She will keep your details and advise you when a local branch is formed in your area.

Why join a local branch?

  • share information and experiences
  • support each other
  • know that you are not alone
  • allow your child to grow up with other heart children
  • establish friendships with other HeartKids families

Some of our branch network / catch ups organised by our branches are held in play centres.  The entry is free as HeartKids pays for your child and siblings to attend.  Food and drinks are at your cost.  Other branch network / catch ups are held in member’s homes or at parks.
