British Heart Foundation (BHF)
Charity organization researching heart and circulatory diseases
We're the British Heart Foundation and we fund research to beat the world’s biggest killers. We fund over £100 million of research each year into all heart and circulatory diseases and the things that cause them. Heart diseases. Stroke. Vascular Dementia. Diabetes. They’re all connected, and they’re all under our microscope.
We fund around £100 million of life saving research every year. Today, we are funding thousands of research projects around the UK that are fighting heart and circulatory diseases.
We also help millions of people every year with our up to date information about heart and circulatory diseases so the UK public are better informed.
We work hard to protect heart health and fight for better services for heart patients - communicating with politicians, government officials, workplaces and schools.
