About the British Heart Foundation
We are the nation's heart charity and the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research. Coronary heart disease is the UK's single biggest killer but we are leading the fight against it. Our pioneering research has helped to transform the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions.
A vision for a better future
Our vision is a world where people don't die prematurely from heart disease.
Over the past months we have been reviewing our strategic approach with the help of staff, supporters and stakeholders.
Our new strategy will give us powerful focus in our fight for every heartbeat, and enable us to lead the fight against cardiovascular disease more effectively. We'll continue the fight through our pioneering heart research, vital prevention and survival activity and ensuring quality care and support for everyone living with heart disease.
