The Healthy Heart Peer Project

Welcome to our Healthy Heart Peer Support Project

If you are part of an African, Caribbean or South Asian community you have a higher risk of suffering from high blood pressure, hypertension or cardiovascular disease.

Our peer support programme will offer you the chance to meet other people from your community who share the same risks as you do. By connecting with other people, sharing your experiences and learning together you can make changes to improve your heart health and maintain it.

We want to help you to…

  • Understand the risks of high blood pressure
  • Learn how to monitor your blood pressure
  • Access support to manage your blood pressure

How will we do this?

  • You can join four weekly, free in-person support groups where you hear from doctors, nurses and nutritionists about how to manage your blood pressure and overall heart health
  • We offer one-to-one sessions with our peer supporters, specially trained people from your community who have lived experience of the challenges you face, who can help you set personal goals to improve your heart health and support you while you make those changes
  • We will also offer some online support groups for those of you who can’t join us in person
