Hearts Together is a new Plymouth-based charity created by the merger of the HeartSWell charity and HeartSWell Lodge CIC.  The new charity will focus on developing their services to support patients, carers and relatives along with anyone adversely affected by heart disease across Devon and Cornwall, through the following activities:

  • Providing accommodation near Derriford Hospital for those undergoing treatment, their families, healthcare practitioners and those in training at the Hospital.
  • Providing counselling and other support individuals with heart disease and their families and carers,
  • Providing defibrillators and training for Communities, Clubs, Schools and Organisations Across Devon and Cornwall

The Charity now needs to recruit a Chair to lead the newly formed Board and Charity in determining and delivering their strategy moving forward.  This is a hugely exciting opportunity for an experienced Trustee who can demonstrate professionalism and credibility as well as drive and energy.  Whilst the Charity is based in Plymouth, they support people across Devon and Cornwall and they are keen to not only extend their services but to increase awareness of the importance of their work.
