Bill's story
I had my stroke two weeks after I retired from the police force. I've used My Stroke Guide as part of my general recovery and it's helped me to make sense of my stroke.

Clodagh's story
My stroke left me with locked-in syndrome. It felt like I was a prisoner in my own body, but I was determined to get my life back. My Life After Stroke grant allowed me to get a cross-trainer which has been invaluable to my recovery.

Nick's story
I used to be Chief Executive of the Institute of Financial Planning but in 2013 I had a major stroke which left me with aphasia, a communication difficulty. The Stroke Association helped me with my rehabilitation and ever since I have been fundraising for them.

Amber's story
I had a massive stroke after my first year at university. The doctors told me I’d be in a wheelchair for the rest of my life, but I’m stubborn. I learnt to walk and talk again and I now volunteer for the Stroke Association.

Glen's story
I had my stroke when I was 47, just two days after Christmas. I was left with communication difficulties, but by attending a Stroke Association support group I could relate to others with communication problems and begin my recovery.
