Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives.
The impact of a stroke can be devastating. Life changes instantly, and recovery is tough.
- Two-thirds of people who survive a stroke find themselves living with a disability.
- 40% of stroke survivors experience anxiety and depression.
- 37% of working age stroke survivors give up work following their stroke.
- 6 in 10 stroke survivors rely on the help of a carer, often a family member or friend.
But there is hope, thanks to the unique support we provide.
We are the UK’s largest charity dedicated to improving the lives of stroke survivors and their families. We want to reach every stroke survivor, and help them receive emotional, practical and financial support.
We fund research into ongoing rehabilitation that could help stroke survivors live fuller, happier lives. And we provide specialist support and campaign to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care.
But we need your help. Together, we can make sure that all stroke survivors lead the best life possible after stroke.
Please donate today and help fund the support that stroke survivors desperately need.
