'We' Campaign

We have been leading the fight against chest, heart and stroke illnesses in Northern Ireland for 75 years since 1946.

What 'We' Do

We provide expert care and support to anyone living with chest, heart and stroke conditions. 

We work to prevent these illnesses, by helping detect early signs of chest, heart and stroke illness and empowering individuals to make healthy choices.

We fund research to advance how we treat, care for and prevent chest, heart and stroke conditions.

We campaign for better care, treatments and awareness of chest, heart and stroke conditions.
