Heart Research UK - "Helping hearts" since 1967

Welcome to Heart Research UK, the charity that has been Helping Hearts for 47 years by funding pioneering research and community projects that help people to live healthier, happier and longer lives.

Heart disease remains the UK's biggest killer with nearly 80,000 people a year dying from the illness and 2.3m people living with a condition which blights their lives and those who love and care for them.

Recently, we've expanded our activities to focus on children, including research into and providing an exercise "toolkit" for children leaving hospital after heart surgery or with a life-long condition so that they know how much activity their condition will allow, and a project for research into using monitors for babies leaving Birmingham Children's Hospital, giving those who look after them peace of mind at home.

We can only achieve things thanks to you, our supporters and partners, whose continued tireless work and fundraising effort is helping to make lives better.  Read more
