We're here to support people to rebuild their lives after stroke. We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke.
We 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 we provide information, support and advice. Our key areas of work include:
Our support services help hundreds of thousands of people through one of the most frightening experiences of their lives and build a life after stroke. Our support services include but are not limited to emotional support, communication support, exercise-based rehabilitation.
Our information is based on accurate and up-to-date evidence. We ask stroke survivors and their families, as well as medical experts, to help us when putting our information together.
Our research helps to improve treatments, care and rehabilitation, saving thousands of lives and helping stroke survivors make the best recovery they can.
Through our busy events schedule, including Make May Purple, Resolution Run and Step Out for Stroke, our fundraisers work nationally and with local communities to raise much-needed funds to support stroke survivors.
We are the force for change. By listening to and working with people affected by stroke, we drive improvements in stroke care. Through initiatives such as the FAST campaign, developed with the Department of Health, we have been hugely successful in making more people aware of the signs of a stroke and the importance of taking emergency action.
Our fantastic volunteers play a vital role in the recovery of stroke survivors across the UK. We provide training and resources so that our volunteers are well equipped to help stroke survivors with their recovery and rehabilitation.
We are setting up a new Stroke Peer Support Group in Hereford. Stroke clubs and groups provide essential long-term peer support to stroke survivors, carers, family and friends. They provide an opportunity for those who have been affected by stroke to rediscover previous skills, learn new skills, regain confidence, increase independence and socialise with other individuals who have had similar experiences.
They provide a friendly environment where people affected by stroke can receive the information, support and help they need. To become a member, supporter or volunteer of the group please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
