We’re here to support people to rebuild their lives after stroke.

We’re driven by our community.

Luna's story
I was 20 and studying at university when I had a stroke. The doctors thought I was drunk because of my age. I wasn't diagnosed for 16 hours.

Clodagh's story
My stroke left me with locked-in syndrome. It felt like I was a prisoner in my own body, inside I was screaming but no one could hear me.

Max's story
I had a stroke at my seventh birthday party. I got a pain on the right side of my head but I couldn’t cry because I lost my voice.

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.

Dave's story
I was on a caravanning holiday with my wife when I had a stroke. Before, I was very practical and didn’t really show any emotion. Now I’m more likely to get upset or break down.
