TalkStroke closes on 5 February 2018

As My Stroke Guide has grown into a trusted online stroke community and support tool, we’re closing TalkStroke and asking you to register for My Stroke Guide. It will be easier for you to get all the online support you need, all in one place.

This unique, custom-built tool gives you the opportunity to create your own social profile, make friends with other users and message them directly. There are many ways to interact with one another, such as using the My social forum, posting on the public social wall and joining specific groups based on your interests.

We hope you register for My Stroke Guide, which is quick, easy and takes no longer than five minutes. You can register whenever you want to – either before 5 February or after the closure. You’ll benefit from using all the new features and keep the conversation alive in a supportive and welcoming community.

We’d like to thank you for all your commitment to TalkStroke and we hope you join us soon on My Stroke Guide, our trusted online stroke community and support tool.

If you have any questions, please call us on 0300 222 5707 or email us on

Research Volunteers
We are looking for volunteers to take part in a focus group as part of a research project being carried out by the University of Southampton.
We are interested in finding out more about how people who are living with a long-term health condition (such as stroke) manage their health and their every day lives. We are particularly interested in how a person’s network of family and friends may be involved in their support. The focus group will be guided by a trained researcher and will involve a group of about 8 volunteers who are willing to discuss and share their experiences in a confidential setting.
If you live in the Southampton area and would like to find out more about taking part in a focus group, please contact:
