The Irish Heart Foundation supports teachers and schools across Ireland in their wellbeing mission to create healthy schools.

Our core programmes are evidence-based and co-designed ensuring they meet the needs of schools and align to the curriculum.

We advocate for policies that promote healthy school environments and prevent childhood obesity. 80% of premature heart disease and stroke is preventable through healthy lifestyles, which is why the Irish Heart Foundation is committed to promoting lifelong healthy habits from an early age.

Our dedicated Children and Young People team is available to support schools. For more information contact

Fundraising for the Irish Heart Foundation

Schools support so many great causes and we hope you will consider the Irish Heart Foundation when you are planning this year. Over 90% of our funding comes from public donations which enables us to provide free resources and programmes to schools throughout Ireland, as well as vital support and information services for those affected by heart disease and stroke.
