Hand on Heart logo Hand on Heart Charity has a simple goal - to prevent the deaths of the 12 young people who die due to a sudden cardiac arrest each week.

Having operated as a campaign since March 2010, Hand on Heart became a fully registered charity in January 2012 and is more committed than ever to reducing the number of deaths due to sudden cardiac arrest.

The organisation’s three aims are:

  • To raise awareness of SCA in young people
  • To provide or fund defibrillators for schools
  • To educate young people about SCA and train them in Basic Life Support and to use defibrillators
