40% of stroke survivors have aphasia due to a stroke. It can affect a person’s ability to understand speech.

Aphasia can take away so much more than words. It can impact on your independence, confidence, work and social life.

Imagine if people walked away when you're trying to talk to them. Or they asked to speak to someone else, rather than you. For stroke survivors living with aphasia, that's an everyday reality.

With the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the stroke survivors in the 'When The Words Away Went' film are living proof that life after stroke is possible.

Please donate today to help us continue funding our vital stroke research and crucial support services*. Your gifts could help stroke survivors living with aphasia hold onto who they are.

Thank you for helping to rebuild lives after stroke.

*Your donations will help to fund vital work – such as research projects, the Stroke Helpline and support groups – and help stroke survivors and their families rebuild their lives.
