Devon & Cornwall's Local Heart Charity 

We provide essential lifesaving equipment to communities & hospitals.
We offer support & counselling to heart disease sufferers, their carers & relatives. 
We provide accommodation for relatives, friends & carers of people undergoing treatment in local hospitals.

Defibrillator programme

Defibrillators save lives! Do you know where your nearest one is? If you need a defibrillator for your organisation or local community, find our more about HeartSWell's programme and how we could help you to become heart-safe from as little as £500.



Why volunteer

Every small thing you do to help, makes a bigger difference than you think. What could you do to help? Could you be a peer supporter? Are you a marketing expert? Do you bake the most delicious cakes? Do you have a little time to spare and the desire to do some good?



Fundraising ideas

The possibilities are endless... From wearing red to wing walking! If you are holding an event or taking part in a sponsorship challenge to raise money for HeartSWell, you can create your fundraising page here today!
