Stroke Association 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.
