British Heart Foundation

In the last five years, a global pandemic has shaken the world and transformed how we live, work and shop. A cost-of-living crisis has compounded an already challenging and changing fundraising market. And people with heart disease, faced with the biggest heart care crisis in living memory, have needed the British Heart Foundation (BHF) more than ever.

Through hard-hitting campaigns and more than 40,000 pieces of coverage, the BHF’s PR team has faced these seismic shifts head on. The team has grown its share of voice to become the second-most talked about health charity in media and been a driving force in raising awareness of the devastating heart care crisis in the UK.

The PR team has been responsible for persistent and emotive storytelling with the sole aim of saving and improving lives. Through campaigning for national policy change, encouraging more people than ever before to learn lifesaving CPR, and ensuring BHF’s groundbreaking research continues to have an impact on a nation of fundraisers, supporters and families affected by heart and circulatory diseases, BHF’s PR team have pushed harder than ever before, at a time when BHF has never been more needed.
