The Stroke Association is here to support people to rebuild their lives after stroke. They believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can
They provide specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support to
rebuild their lives.
Rebuilding lives after stroke is a team effort. It takes the determination
of stroke survivors and carers, the generosity of supporters and the dedication of the healthcare and research communities to get there.
To help in the recovery of stroke survivors the Stroke Association provides information, support and advice.
The Stroke Association’s key areas of work include:
The support services help hundreds of thousands of people through one of the most frightening experiences of their lives and build a life after stroke.
The support services include but are not limited to emotional support, communication support, exercise-based rehabilitation.
The Stroke Association’s information is based on accurate and up-to-date evidence. They ask stroke survivors and their families, as well as medical
experts, to help them when putting the information together.
Stroke Association’s research helps to improve treatments, care and rehabilitation, saving thousands of lives and helping stroke survivors make the best recovery they can.
Through their busy events schedule, including Make May Purple, Resolution Run and Step Out for Stroke, their fundraisers work nationally and with local communities to raise much-needed funds to support stroke survivors.
Stroke Association are the force for change. By listening to and working with people affected by stroke, they drive improvements in stroke care. Through initiatives such as the FAST campaign, developed with the Department of Health, they have been hugely successful in making more people aware of the signs of a stroke and the importance of taking emergency action.
Stroke Association’s fantastic volunteers play a vital role in the recovery of stroke survivors across the UK. They provide training and resources so that
their volunteers are well equipped to help stroke survivors with their recovery and rehabilitation.
