The UK’s only dedicated vascular disease charity
Vascular disease is the collective term for diseases of the veins and arteries. Every part of the body to which blood flows can be affected by it.
It’s as common as cancer and heart disease and accounts for 40% of deaths in the UK, many of which are preventable. People with diabetes are five times more likely to develop vascular disease.
The Circulation Foundation funds and promotes research into the causes, treatment and prevention of vascular disease in the UK.
We provide essential information to sufferers and their families, whilst raising awareness of vascular disease and the importance of healthy veins and arteries, to ensure we can lead longer, healthier lives.
