We’ve put together a complete guide to stroke for employers, highlighting how best to support someone when they are ready to return to work. It helps employers understand the changes a stroke can cause and how they can affect someone in the workplace.  

We work with employers to raise awareness of stroke and its impacts. We do this by:

  • providing one-to-one tailored advice and guidance to managers and staff on how best to support stroke survivors in the workplace
  • offering advice and guidance to employees who go back to work following a stroke to ensure they are ready
  • running tailor-made Stroke Awareness Sessions for employers and staff to raise awareness of what a stroke is and its effect.

There's also a complete guide to work and stroke for anyone who is planning to return to work after a stroke. It contains useful advice on planning your return, your rights at work, changing career, retirement and volunteering.
