The emotional impact of the sudden, seemingly inexplicable death of a young person on their family cannot be underestimated. CRY offers emotional and clinical support following a young sudden cardiac death.
Screening to identify young people at risk is cost-effective when conducted correctly - the conditions can be treated, securing a future for those identified. All young people should have the choice to be tested.
CRY's research programme gives us unique access to general population-based data, enabling comparisons between athletes, ethnicities and gender. Better understanding of what is normal for young people, can better identify and treat those at risk.
Awareness not only helps identify those at risk, but also ensures correct clinical practice when treating a young person with an inherited cardiac condition.
Preventing young sudden cardiac deaths through awareness, screening and research, and supporting affected families.

For extra clarity an Echocardiogram (ultrasound scan) can also be done.If there has been a young (under 35) sudden death in the family, the family is entitled to be screened on the NHS.
All of CRY's public events are free to attend.
