Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY)

CRY is the UK charity that supports those affected by conditions that can cause young sudden cardiac death. CRY is dedicated to fund research, screening programmes, & fast track specialist services.

Founded 1995

  • Mission statement

    Cardiac Risk in the Young aims to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death by working with cardiologists and family doctors to establish good practice and appropriate screening facilities to promote and protect the cardiac health of our young.

  • Aims

    Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) aims to:

    • Cardiac Screening - CRY’s subsidised screening service is available to any person aged between 14 and 35. We operate a number of clinics throughout the UK and via our mobile screening service.
    • Bereavement support Network - CRY’s network is made up of volunteers with experience of a similar tragedy who have undertaken CRY's accredited counselling training to help others cope.
    • CRY Centre for Cardiac Pathology - CRY provides this service – and funds the cost of coroners’ referrals – so that families no longer have to wait up to 24 months for the cause of death.
    • Support for young people with cardiac conditions - CRY’s myheart network offers help, support and information to young people who are coping with the diagnosis of a heart condition.
    • Research - CRY's screening programme not only identifies people at risk, but also provides data for vital research into the prevalence and management of cardiac abnormalities.
