Everything we do comes back to funding life-saving research into all heart and circulatory conditions including heart failure, stroke, and vascular dementia. Every hour of research we’ve ever funded, every item we’ve ever sold, every campaign we’ve ever run, all the support we’ve ever given. The donations we receive are used to make people’s lives healthier and longer.
We celebrate diversity and make inclusion part of what we do every day. It sits at the heart of our People Experience. Our aim is for all of our colleagues and volunteers to bring their true self to work.
