Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland
Our vision is for a healthier Scotland where no on dies prematurely of preventable chest, heart or stroke conditions, and all of those affected receive the highest standards of treatment and support
• Every minute of every day 100,000 people in Scotland struggle to breathe because of chronic chest illness.
• Every 55 minutes someone in Scotland will have a heart attack.
• Every 45 minutes someone in Scotland will have a stroke.
Every pound you raise will stay in Scotland!
Research, Diagnosis & Cure
We invest over £1 million each year in medical research and funding innovative clinical research trials which focus on the real needs of those surviving, living with or losing a loved one to these devastating illnesses.
Support, Understanding & Care
We provide a lifeline for those in Scotland who are isolated, fearful or anxious about their condition; through the listening ear of our AdviceLine, Volunteer Befrienders, Chest, Heart or Stroke groups and providing financial assistance through our welfaregrants. We are also the sole Scottish charity providing a network of dedicated communication support services to those with a communication difficulty following a stroke
Influence, Education & Action
We enable those living with chest, heart and stroke illness in Scotland to influence their local NHS services and campaign on the crucial issues that affect them. Our Voices Scotland programme gives them the powerful voice they need.
Together we can beat chest, heart and stroke illness in Scotland.
