The Charities we Support

Belarto Limited support the following charities:

British Heart Foundation

The British Heart Foundation’s vision is of a world in which people do not die prematurely of heart disease.

We’ll achieve this through pioneering research, vital prevention activity and ensuring quality care and support for everyone living with heart disease.

Investing in pioneering research
We fund around 1,200 research projects investigating every aspect of heart disease – from causes and safer drugs to improving surgical techniques.

Supporting and caring for heart patients
We fund British Heart Foundation Nurses who visit heart patients with all types of heart conditions in their homes. We provide defibrillators and echocardiograph machines for hospitals, emergency services and first-aiders.

Providing vital information to help people reduce their own risk of dying prematurely from a heart or circulatory related illness
We produce publications, videos and other materials for health professionals and the public including children. We inform people about how to improve the health of their heart through public information campaigns, advertising and the media.

Blue Cross

The Blue Cross is a registered UK animal welfare charity. Our aims are to:

  • Ensure the welfare of animals by providing practical care
  • Highlight the benefits of companionship between animals and people
  • Promote a sense of respect and responsibility towards animals in the community

We provide support to the nation’s pets and their owners by:

  • Treating pets whose owners cannot afford private veterinary treatment
  • Finding permanent homes for unwanted or abandoned animals
  • Educating the public in responsible animal ownership

Association of Children's Hospices

The Association of Children’s Hospices (ACH) is a registered charity which brings together over 40 voluntary sector children’s hospice services throughout the UK dedicated to the care of children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions and their families.

ACH is the national voice representing children’s hospice services in the UK, and through them the life-limited children and their families who use them. The charity works together with other organisations to support the development of best practice and the provision of children’s hospice services across the UK. All ACH’s activities are shaped by a philosophy which keeps the life-limited children and their families at the heart of their work.

Marie Curie Cancer Care

Marie Curie Cancer Care provides high quality nursing, totally free, to give people with terminal cancer and other illnesses the choice of dying at home, supported by their families.

Mind

Mind is the leading mental health charity in England and Wales. We work to create a better life for everyone with experience of mental distress by:

  • Advancing the views, needs and ambitions of people with mental health problems
  • Challenging discrimination and promoting inclusion
  • Influencing policy through campaigning and education
  • Inspiring the development of quality services which reflect expressed need and diversity
  • Achieving equal rights through campaigning and education.

In all our work we promote our values: informed, determined, diversity, integrity and partnership. Mental health problems can affect anyone, rich or poor, young or old, shattering the lives of those affected and the lives of the people close to them. One in four of us will experience a mental health problem at some point in our lives. Each year more than 250,000 people are admitted to psychiatric hospitals and over 4,000 people take their own lives.
