About Us

Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke’s (NICHS) vision is a healthy Northern Ireland free from chest, heart, and stroke illnesses. 

Established in 1946, we work with people of all ages across the country, delivering vital care and prevention services, supporting ground-breaking research and campaigning for change. 

Today, as many as 470,000 people in Northern Ireland are living with a chest, heart or stroke condition and we are committed to supporting them. 

With almost 90% of our income coming exclusively from public donations we need your help to continue to help thousands of local people and their families rebuild their lives.

Our Strategic Plan 2023-26

We have developed our new 2023 – 2026 strategic plan in conjunction with our staff, service users past and present, supporters and our Governance Board. We are very grateful for their help in shaping our plans for the next 3 years. This Strategic Plan for 2023 – 2026 will be our roadmap and will guide us as we continue to work tirelessly with our partners and stakeholders to achieve our vision of a healthy Northern Ireland free from chest, heart and stroke illnesses and strive in our mission to prevent chest, heart and stroke conditions and support people affected by them.
