Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity has partnered with ECHO (Evelina Children’s Heart Organisation) with the aim of bridging the gap between the medical care that families receive in hospital and the social palliative care they receive in the home or community. Our Cardiac Support Worker works closely with both Rainbow Trust and ECHO to ensure that families whose children have life threatening and complex heart conditions receive the additional emotional and practical support they need.
Evelina Children’s Heart Organisation (ECHO) supports children and young people with heart conditions, who have had treatment or care under the Evelina London Children’s Hospital, and their families. Formed in 1984, they provide support and encouragement to the whole family. ECHO support members from across the UK and do so both within the hospital and within local communities and clinics.
