Investing in local communities

Healthy Heart Grants

Thanks to our partnership with Subway® we offer Healthy Heart Grants of up to £10,000 to community projects that focus on heart health and promote healthier, happier longer lives for everyone.

We award up to £10,000 in 12 regions in the UK every year.

Over the last 10 years we have awarded over 120 Heart Research UK and Subway® Healthy Heart Grants, directly benefitting the hearts of over 70,000 individuals and countless wider community and family members across all regions of the UK.

These grants are available thanks to the fundraising done in Subway® stores and through the Subway Helping Hearts™ Family 5Ks. They are available for new, original and innovative projects that actively promote a healthy heart and help to prevent, or reduce, the risk of heart disease near you.

To find out how a Heart Research UK and Subway® Healthy Heart Grant could benefit your community, don’t just take our word for it. This is what some of our grant benefactors have to say:

Women Today, Tyne Tees

“I hadn’t realised how powerful knowledge, skills, good food, fitness and friendship could be. The Power to Change project has opened my eyes and changed the lives of many Black African Women and families in Darlington. Thank you.”

Ethel, Feel Good Women’s Group, Scotland

“I used to walk a lot with my husband but since he died I didn’t have anyone to walk with. Now I go to two exercise classes a week and have met new friends. I’m very lucky to be able to exercise and feel fit at 82 years old.”

Pete, Pedal Ready, Yorkshire

‘’It’s been 55 years since I cycled but once you get out there and get cycling you feel 100% better for it. The Healthy Heart cycle project has made a big difference to me. It’s helped me be more active than I’ve been in years and I’ve lost just over 2 stone.”

Parent feedback, Home Start Colchester

"I can’t believe for seven years I have not been able to convince my child to eat a tomato and now he’s coming home excited telling me what he’s been making and even helping me cook at home. This is a fantastic opportunity. Thank you."
