Helping Hearts Consumer Community

About us


Helping Hearts Consumer Community

We need your opinion, experience and skills to help us improve the heart health of all Australians.

The Heart Foundation is committed to improving the heart health of Australians. However to truly make a difference we must consider the voice of all members of our community. Whether you are affected by heart disease, care for someone with a heart condition, are a donor, or simply share out passion for a healthier Australia, your insight can help us continuously improve our work.

People want to take part in Community activities for many reasons 

  • To improve healthcare for others, as well as giving hope for future generations
  • To help researchers learn important new information
  • To learn more about our work
  • To share valuable feedback and insight which can improve heart health programs
  • To use your experience to advocate for others

Consumer opportunities

The Heart Foundation always has opportunities available for consumers:

  • Become a consumer reviewer of research
  • Participate in consumer consultations
  • Join a committee or advisory group
  • Provide feedback on our projects and campaigns
