What We Do


Care and Support

We support thousands of local people, their families and carers each year who are affected by chest, heart and stroke conditions.

Our wide range of care programmes provide emotional and practical support as well as physical rehabilitation, helping people through their recovery when they need us most, so that they can go on to live with their condition with a better quality of life. Find out more about our care services.



Our health checks, health talks and programmes work to detect the early signs of chest, heart and stroke illnesses in individuals, and empower people to change their lifestyle to improve their health.

We deliver our prevention services in schools, workplaces and community settings such as hostels, across Northern Ireland. Find out more about our prevention services.
