Stroke Association

Charity description

Stroke Association logo
Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate. We believe in life after stroke. That’s why we campaign to improve stroke care and support people to make the best possible recovery. It’s why we fund research into new treatments and ways to prevent stroke. We are a charity, and rely on your support to change lives and prevent stroke. Thank you.

In the UK 152,000 people have a stroke every year. 50,000 will sadly die and 50,000 will be left with a permanent disability. Stroke is the No. 2 biggest killer in the world and the No. 1 cause of severe adult disability in the UK. However with the right care and support in place, 50,000 people will make a recovery.

Stroke is a truly devastating condition - once a stroke survivor leaves hospital, the Stroke Association steps in. They desperately need our support in dealing with the immediate consequences of stroke and learning how to adjust to a new way of life and finding a new identity.

We provide specialised communication development
programmes for stroke survivors across the UK.We lobby government for increased funding and campaign for improved care & services. Planning and investing in the future is also extremely important to us; we do this through stroke education,
training and research.

Charity No: 211015
