We're here for you

Everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke.

Erin's story
When I called the Stroke Association Helpline I was having difficulties coping with a lot of things. It was a friendly voice at the other end of the phone. They helped me accept that this has happened to me and this is now who I am.

Heidi's story
On My Stroke Guide you can talk to other people and ask them questions, which is reassuring. Chatting to other stroke survivors on the forums has helped me to improve my reading, writing and confidence.

Baz's story
I woke up and everything was spinning. I lost my mobility, vision and speech. For months afterwards I felt horrible. The work it took me to get into the position I’m in now is unbelievable.
