Heart Support Australia (HS-A) is a national not-for-profit organisation providing support, information and encouragement to people who have been affected by a heart event. The National Office supports HS-A's role as a peak body while our network of Branches and Interest Groups across Australia provide on the ground support, particularly to those in remote, regional and rural areas. Of the 4.2 million Australians living with a heart condition 1.2 million are also diagnosed with heart disease. These Australians are five to seven times more likely to suffer future heart events than those who are not diagnosed.
Your support can help HS-A reach these Australians and provide them with the programs and services they need to improve their quality of life and help reduce their risk of a secondary heart event.

COMMUNITY PEER SUPPORT
Our Branches and Interest Groups offer peer support services to assist people affected by heart conditions. Branches meet on a regular basis, organising social events, guest speakers, recreational activities, hospital visits and other community work. Along with our on-the-ground support services, HS-A provides a host of online and virtual support options that cater to housebound Australians and those living in remote, rural and regional areas.
Heart Support Australia is keen to make contact with people who have had heart conditions or have family or friends with a heart condition.
