Harry’s Hydrocephalus Awareness Trust(Harry’s Hat)

We are proud to support Harry’s Hydrocephalus Awareness Trust (Harry’s Hat), ‘Get Ahead’ scheme with the provision of tape measures to health professionals and parents.

This amazing charity, set up by Yateley’s local champion, Caroline Coates, CEO of Harry’s Hat. The Trust is the only UK charity to focus solely on hydrocephalus and its impact on children.

Here’s what Caroline Coates, Chief Executive Officer of Harry’s Hat, has to say about the support she receives from Yateley & District Lions Club:

“Without the support from the Lions, we simply would not be able to offer free tape measures to the front-line health professionals who need them.  Our Get-A-Head campaign which works to raise awareness of the importance of infant head circumference measurement as a key tool for identifying babies showing signs of hydrocephalus is vital and the Lions ongoing support enables us to take the message and the resources out into the community to make sure everyone has the resources; they need to measure a baby’s head properly.  The outcome is that more babies across the UK are having their heads measured and those showing signs of hydrocephalus are referred for investigation. 

This quote from a parent highlights why the work is so important.  “It was because I knew about Get-A-Head campaign that I pushed to get my baby’s head measured.  It turns out that she did have hydrocephalus and now has a shunt.  Although our life will never be easy, I know that a delay in her diagnosis could have meant the outcome was even worse.”
