British Heart Foundation (BHF)
Each day, around 440 people in the UK lose their lives to cardiovascular disease (CVD). More than 100
of them will be under 75, while 7 million people across the nation are living with the effects of the disease.
It’s because of these shocking statistics that the British Heart Foundation exists.
In addition to the usual fundraising and back-office operations, the BHF has an extensive retail
environment with more than 730 stores. This creates a large requirement for technology projects within
the charity, covering retail systems, CRM, websites, digital communications, social media, sophisticated
grant management systems and HR and Finance systems. In 2014 the BHF published an ambitious
Strategy to 2020, to fight for every heartbeat. With a complex infrastructure and an ambitious strategy, quality project management information was crucial for the BHF.
