We are the country’s largest charity offering care and support to people with chest, heart and stroke conditions.  Our network of stroke nurses, rehabilitation support workers, peer support groups and researchers help people across Scotland live life to the full.

We have recently launched our No Life Half Lived strategy with an ambitious plan to develop new services, increase our reach and double our income.
