You can make a real difference
Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland’s mission is to make sure that there is no life half lived in Scotland.
We are Scotland’s largest charity working to help people with chest, heart and stroke conditions, including Long Covid, live life to the full.
Much of the work we do relies on grants from charitable trusts and foundations like yours. These vital funds enable us to provide services and support for people as they return home from hospital.
By funding our essential services and projects, you’ll be helping people across Scotland so more than survive – you’ll help them really live.
We are currently working on a number of projects and services which rely on funding from charitable trusts and foundations:

“With your help, I can continue getting the help I need”
When Tom suffered a devastating stroke, he and his wife Karen were told that he might be “locked in” forever.
“It was terrifying to think I wouldn’t be able to move, speak or communicate in any way at all. I have never been so scared, but thankfully I am not locked in completely,” writes Tom.
“I have aphasia and verbal dyspraxia, which means I can’t put my muscles in the right position to speak because my brain can no longer send the right message to my mouth. Having both those conditions together means speaking is almost impossible for me.
“Since then, life has been really difficult. It’s been hard to adjust to what our lives are like now.
“But the support Karen and I get from Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland is hard to put into words. It’s something so very special.
“Every week we join the online aphasia support group set up by Lucy from Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland. It has been a lifeline for us and is now one of the most important things in our lives.”
By funding projects like our online support groups, you’ll be helping people like Tom and Karen get the support they desperately need after a life-changing stroke.
We couldn’t do what we do without the kindness and generosity of charitable trusts and foundations across Scotland. These grants are helping to make sure no one has to recover alone when they return home from hospital with a chest, heart or stroke condition.
