Founded in 1991 by a group of people who simply wanted to help each other, a sentiment we have kept alive every day since we began. Support comes in many forms and we lead by example, to prove there is life after a heart attack.
Heart Disease can have a tremendous impact on the entire family. Someone who has experienced heart health events is undoubtedly in a better position to offer comfort and hope to those recovering or living with heart problems. Take Heart is a cardiac support group covering the areas of Southend, Castle Point, Rayleigh and Rochford, Essex. Our aim is to offer a support network for all who have become affected by Cardiac problems whether as a patient, carer or family members. We are a non-medical voluntary group here to help you consider a new approach to life both during and after cardiac problems, in order to restore you to a more active life.
At Take Heart we like to take a positive view, after all life is for living and should be enjoyed as best we can. By meeting with people who understand you by using their own personal experiences, Take Heart can show you there is hope for a brighter future. Our community is here for you, covering all aspects of heart health matters from blood pressure to heart transplants so feel free to contact us today. We offer FREE membership, monthly meetings, quarterly magazines and a range of social events throughout the year. We have learned to enjoy ourselves here at Take Heart and in doing so we help others do the same.
Take Heart Southend has regular events and meetings to keep our members entertained and informed. We have regular outings to add a supportive and friendly social element. We also hold meetings that can give more information on Heart Disease along with other interesting topics.

For me, Take Heart is full of memorable moments such as the overnight trip to The Thursford Christmas Spectacular and a wonderful holiday to Ireland.
I stayed a member after my wife passed away because they’re a good, if slightly mad, crowd led by Paul.
We joined Take Heart after my late husband’s heart attack 15 years ago and have been on many outings and trips over the years. We always look forward to receiving the Magazine and reading the jokes which would cheer us up. Now I am on my own I know I will get a warm welcome from Take Heart at any of there events.
