Stroke research helps to prevent strokes and find more effective rehabilitation techniques.

2 million

The estimated number of stroke survivors in the UK by 2035. That's more than double the current number.

As the ageing population grows, the reality of stroke will be closer to home than ever before.

700,000

The number of people expected to be living with a long-term disability as a result of stroke by 2035.

The number of stroke survivors is expected to more than double in the next 20 years, meaning over 2 million people in the UK are anticipated to be living with the effects of stroke. As the ageing population grows, so too will the pressure on our already stretched health and social care services to treat and care for people affected by stroke.

 

We need to do something now.

Funding stroke research is the only way we will find more effective treatments and rehabilitation techniques. This would mean that more people could live independently, be less affected by disability, and less reliant on both care providers and their families.

 

We need to invest in cutting-edge emergency treatments, develop and roll out new rehabilitation approaches, and understand the cognitive difficulties that can be associated with stroke. We also need to fund research that could stop stroke from happening.

 

With your support we can fund research that will reduce the number of strokes and help stroke survivors to make the best recovery and regain as much of their independence as possible. Find out how research changed the story for three stroke survivors.
