Our corporate strategy sets out the next steps in our journey to a world where there are fewer strokes and all those affected by stroke get the help they need to rebuild their lives.

Many stroke survivors and their families aren’t receiving the right support. And the number of people having strokes is set to rise, affecting more people at an earlier age. There’s a lot of work to do. And we know that we can’t do it alone.

We launched our new strategy in 2019, and we’d love your support. To make stroke the priority it needs to be. To make sure that everyone affected by stroke has access to the support they need. And so that people and communities are empowered to take action on stroke.

Make stroke the priority it needs to be

We want to see:

  • Ambitious strategies and well-funded improvement plans which rival the best in the world.
  • Closing inequality gaps in stroke treatment and outcomes.
  • Increased investment in stroke research and capacity that prioritises research that achieves the greatest impact for people rebuilding their lives after stroke.
  • More people connected to stroke giving time, voice and money to rebuilding lives after stroke.

Ensure that everyone affected by stroke has access to the rehabilitation and lifelong support they need

We want to see:

  • Funders and providers increase investment in research and services for rehabilitation and lifelong support.
  • Everyone affected by stroke has the information they need to make informed choices about treatment, care and support which help them to take more control of their ongoing recovery and rebuild their lives.
  • A range of emotional, practical and social support offers available in the community for stroke survivors and carers wherever they live.
  • More people benefiting from our own support offerings.

To partner with people and communities to help them take action on stroke

We want to see:

  • Communities - local and national, professional and social - advocating for and influencing action on stroke.
  • Stroke survivors and carers bring their insight and empathy to improve stroke outcomes for themselves and others – and in doing so rebuild their own confidence and self-esteem.
  • Stroke survivors benefit from and contribute to the human kindness found in all communities.
  • More people within communities are inspired to give time, voice or money to stroke.
