Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland

Chest Heart and Stroke Scotland helps people who are living with chest, heart or stroke illness and need financial assistance. 

It does this by giving grants to help buy items or services that may improve the person's quality of life, independence, mobility or dignity. 

In the past the organisation has given grants for:

  • Aids to help with daily life
  • Adaptations
  • Respite care or holidays
  • White goods
  • Travel costs, such as hospital visits

Please contact the organisation if you are unsure if they can help with what you are looking for.

  • anything that has already been paid for

 

How to apply?

A sponsor from a statutory service, such as a social worker or NHS professional, should apply on a person's behalf. The sponsor can contact Chest Heart and Scotland to request an application form.
