No Life Half Lived
Everyone Has The Right To Live Life To The Full
Every day in Scotland:
- 25 people will have a stroke
- 30 people will have a heart attack
- 46 people will be diagnosed with heart failure
- 1 in 11 people will struggle to breathe because of chronic chest illness
Chest, heart and stroke conditions account for 40% of all adult deaths in Scotland.
More people than ever before are living with chest, heart or stroke conditions.
We want to help people to breathe better. We want people’s hearts to work as well as they can. We want to make sure that everyone has the best recovery they can after a stroke.
Most people will not have access to the support or rehabilitation services that would help them live healthier lives and we want to change that.
That is why we have launched our new vision, No Life Half Lived. So that everyone in Scotland gets the care and support they need, when and where they need it.
By 2021 we will double the number of people we reach, double our income and double our volunteers so that we can ensure that No Life is Half Lived in Scotland.
