The families of children with congenital heart defects face a stressful and difficult task.
Lagans Foundation is a Registered Charity based in Horwich, Bolton, and assists families with babies or young children aged 0-5 with heart defects or feeding difficulties. The Charity provides a minimum of 2 hours of volunteer support each week, at home or in hospital.
Lagans is the only UK Charity to offer respite and emotional and physical support to parents and carers. It was founded in 2011 after the death of baby Lagan, and the experiences of mum Carren, who resolved to help parents going through the same position.
The Charity is growing and ambitious in its’ plans to become a credible health care provider within the voluntary and community sector. Caroline has been contracted by Lagans to help them with their fundraising strategy and will be working with them to develop a number of funding bids over the next 12 months.
