Around a quarter of strokes happen to people of working age (16-65) and life can change drastically, especially if you have to give up work as a result.
If you or someone you know has had a stroke, this service provides support and guidance to return to existing work or to find new opportunities in work, further training or volunteering.
- We've developed a back to work guide for employers, with information on how best to support stroke survivors return to the work place.
- There is also a guide to work and stroke for anyone who is thinking of going back to work, volunteering or changing career after a stroke.
- Please also see our factsheet ‘Stroke in People of Working Age’.
