Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke logo

Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke is a local charity which helps people living with these conditions and their families. Each year we need to raise over £3m to fund our range of programmes, community services and research in the hospitals and universities of Northern Ireland.

Our vision for Northern Ireland is one where everyone can live life to the full, free from chest, heart and stroke illnesses. To achieve this, our work is focused in these areas: Care Services, Prevention, Health Promotion, Research, Lobbying and Policy Work. All our work is within Northern Ireland. When people donate to NICHS, they know their entire gift will be used for local benefit.
