This event is an opportunity for stroke survivors, carers or those involved in a stroke support group to meet like-minded people and share their own experiences.  

  • Date: Wednesday 15 November 2017   
  • Venue: Copthorne Hotel Cardiff, Copthorne Way, Culverhouse Cross, Cardiff, CF5 6DH

The interactive and inspiring conference includes talks, workshops and an exhibition, and will be aimed at people affected by stroke from Wales. There'll be three plenary talks as well as a number of workshops, delivered by stroke survivors and stroke professionals. Take a look at our programme for more information (also available in Welsh).

With you in mind

We know that attending a conference might not be easy or something you've done before so we've carefully chosen a venue that's accessible to suit your needs and designed a programme that allows you time to rest. We work with those affected by stroke when making these decisions to ensure everything works for you.

We've kept ticket prices as low as possible but if you need support covering the costs of attending please contact us for more information about bursaries.
