Braveheart Association - Falkirk

Braveheart is a small charity, operating in the Forth Valley area of Scotland, which provides self management support groups and a led walking programme to adults with or at risk of developing long term health problems, particularly coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Braveheart's model is unique to the UK. It is entirely volunteer led, and it takes a community development approach. Brave heart trains lay volunteers, many of whom have long term health conditions themselves and it involves them as leaders. Our approach is to engage with " high risk" individuals in non clinical settings such as community centres and church halls to support and encourage them to take responsibility for improving their health
