The British Heart Foundation is currently funding over £60 million of world class research in Scotland; with 2 centres of excellence in Edinburgh (£30 million+) and Glasgow (£22 million+) and also major research in Aberdeen (£2 million+) and Dundee (£4 million+).
The charity is looking to establish Development Boards for the first time in these locations and would welcome a conversation with anyone interested in getting involved in the British Heart Foundation’s work to fight for every heartbeat and to combat Scotland’s biggest killer.

Development Board opportunities
Coronary heart disease is Scotland’s biggest killer. The British Heart Foundation is leading the fight against it and we are looking to establish inaugural Development Board’s in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee to help us fight for every heartbeat.
The purpose of the Development Board
To use members skills, experience, knowledge, passion and reach to;
- Increase awareness and understanding about our work in Scotland, including our research in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee where we are currently funding over £60 million of world class research.
- Fundraise – allowing the British Heart Foundation to continue our Fight for every Heartbeat through research, survival and prevention
- Develop relationships, making introductions and connections that will help us meet our goals
- Be creative – what are we missing, what could we do, what could you do?
What are we looking for?
Well we’re open to suggestions; but in short, people with skills, passion, reach and ideas. People who can add value to our team in Scotland.
The most important thing is adding colourful people who will help brighten the horizons for the British Heart Foundation in Scotland. We could/should be shouting about our incredible work a lot more and by introducing proposed Development Boards in Edinburgh and Glasgow were we have Centres of Excellence and in Aberdeen and Dundee then this will certainly help us raise our voices.
