Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. Depending on which part of the brain is affected, you may suddenly face communication and physical difficulties, or you may find that your emotions and personality are affected. The impact of a stroke can be completely life-altering, but so can the impact of your help.
- £80 could pay for a stroke survivor to attend a six-week computer course, a vital communication tool to aid recovery and beyond.
- £150 could help pay for research into new stroke treatments, as we did with thrombolysis - a clot-busting drug that returns the blood supply to the brain that has transformed the outcomes of stroke survivors who have received it.
- £300 could allow a befriending volunteer to work with a stroke survivor for up to a year, perhaps accompanying them on a bus journey once a week until they feel confident enough to take the same journey on their own.
- £1,000 could pay for start-up funds for ten voluntary groups, helping them to start providing crucial peer support in their community.
With your support, we can provide vital support services to help stroke survivors rebuild their lives during this difficult time. Thank you.
