Our Mission

Big Hearts is a family-focused charity, aiming to improve the lives of people who are at risk of social isolation across our communities, with a focus on South West Edinburgh.

As official charity partner of Heart of Midlothian Football Club, Big Hearts uses the power of the Club’s crest to better support and reach out to individuals and families in need.

We work closely with a network of  local charities and partners to build and deliver targeted support that will create positive social change. In 2018 Big Hearts initiated a new direction, focusing on 5 identified areas of need in our community that will shape our work over the next three years.
