Resources to help you understand stroke in childhood.
We've developed a toolkit for teachers and childcare professionals to help you when you are supporting children after their stroke. You may also find useful resources in I am a child, I am a young person.
Our childhood stroke posters raise awareness that stroke happens to children and young people too. Download now:
We also have these resources available to download, print and share with parents / carers:
- Information leaflet - A leaflet to share with parents, carers or guardians, for them to contact us.
- A4 poster - A poster to display in communal areas, so people affected by childhood stroke know there is support available.
- Introductory card - A handy card with details of how we can support and how to contact us.
If you're a professional, you can refer patients to our Childhood Stroke Support by filling out our simple form or if you'd prefer to send this information via email, you can download this form, and send securely using firstname.lastname@example.org.
