Hearts & Minds is a self-funding and voluntary group, which has been started by people with heart problems so that they can offer support and information to others in the Basildon & District area who are suffering from heart problems. These problems include angina, heart attack and other heart related problems.

As heart disease has a tremendous impact on an individual’s whole family, Hearts & Minds objectives encompass those who care for the sufferer too. Someone who has experienced problems with their heart is undoubtedly in the best position to offer comfort and hope to those who are suffering from heart related illnesses and Hearts Minds have members who can be contacted by anyone needing help to come to terms with their illness.

There are many fears and worries experienced by people with heart disease and heart related illnesses. Sharing these with others helps to lessen the load. Hearts & Minds hold regular meetings where members can share problems and experiences.

We have speakers who give interesting and informative talks related not only to heart disease but on a number of topical and social subjects. We hold fund-raising events so that we can provide these services, but membership of the group is free so that anyone who needs our help and support can join us.
