Why support HEART UK?

“The helpline saved my life,” Tom, Bristol

“I need HEART UK to be there for my boys when I’m no longer around,” Karen, Dartford

We are passionate about preventing early death caused by high cholesterol.

6 in 10 adults in the UK have raised cholesterol. 1 in 500 people are born with a high cholesterol condition called Familial hypercholesterolaemia (often shorted to FH), which means they are at high risk of a heart attack, stroke or sudden death in their 20s, 30s and 40s unless diagnosed and treated.

Our vision is that the majority of UK adults will know their cholesterol levels, understand the impact and to be taking any necessary action.

HEART UK is here for anyone affected by raised cholesterol. We bring people together, provide information, support, education and we campaign for improved diagnosis and standards of care.

We couldn’t do any of this without your help.

We handle over 3,500 enquiries via the cholesterol helpline each year; giving direct help and advice to people that are concerned about their cholesterol and other blood fats.
