Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives.
Stroke is a medical emergency. It can happen to anyone, of any age, at any time. The impact can be devastating, costing people their ability to move, communicate and lead their everyday lives.
Two-thirds of people who survive a stroke find themselves living with a disability. And 1 in 4 strokes happen in people of working age.
Alex was just 36 when a stroke left him with severe physical disabilities as well as having a huge impact on his emotional and mental health. He had two very young children at the time and a busy job. Being there for his family and being able to do his job all changed.
We need your help so we can reach more stroke survivors who need us.
We are the UK's largest charity dedicated to helping with the emotional, practical and financial cost of stroke.
- £75 could help pay for a stroke coordinator to visit the homes of families affected by stroke.
- £50 could help fund more research projects and improve treatment for stroke survivors.
- £30 could help to run groups, like Alex’s, where survivors can connect and share their experiences of stroke.
Together, we can make sure that all stroke survivors lead the best life possible after stroke.
Please donate today and help more stroke survivors and their loved ones get the support they desperately need.
