We need you to join the fight to make sure there is No Life Half Lived in Scotland.

Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland is determined that people in Scotland have access to the support and rehabilitation services to help them live life to the full again and transition from hospital to home.

Our No Life Half Lived strategy outlines the ambition and determination to ensure that our services have a positive impact on the lives of the people we support, and their families.

It is our aim to become Scotland’s leading organisation for person-centred, user-led community support for people living with chest, heart and stroke conditions.

“I worried that my life would never be the same.”

Catriona Drummond, recovering after a heart attack

“I felt anxious, lost and alone when I got home from hospital after my heart attack.

“I worried that my life would never be the same.

“But that’s when I met Wendy, a nurse from Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland. Wendy was always there for me if I needed her.

“She helped me when I felt at my worst and she’s even made me feel confident enough to get back to work.”

“I just wanted to help folk with problems like mine, and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.”

Jock Shiells, living with COPD

“I came out of hospital and was left on my own to try to recover and rebuild my life.

“That’s why I set up a rehab group with Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland.

“I just wanted to help folk with problems like mine, and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done. It’s a rehab group but actually it feels like a family.”

“Tom from Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland was there for me.”

Mike Wilkinson, stroke survivor

“After my stroke, I was in a dark place. I sometimes worried I wouldn’t be able to wake up in the morning. That I might have another stroke.

“But Tom from Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland was there for me.

“He came to visit me at home and reassured me there was light at the end of the tunnel.

“And now, I am feeling better and I know how to control my anxiety. I now have a life I can look forward to living.”
