At the Stroke Association we support people to make the best possible recovery following a stroke. One of the ways we can help is through offering financial support to those most in need.

Life After Stroke Grants provide a one off payment of up to £300 to fund vital home or personal equipment, or by funding support to become active in your community.

How to apply

Our grants are means tested to ensure we're helping those most in need. To find out how to apply for a grant, simply contact us by using the email address below. You can also ask your health, social care or other professional contact to apply on your behalf. This could be an occupational therapist, health visitor or the Citizen’s Advice Bureau.

Alternatively if you're receiving one of our Life After Stroke Services please ask your co-ordinator for further information.

To apply for a Life After Stroke Grant call our helpline on 0303 3033 100 or email including your name and postcode.

Our funding

Royal Mail Group has chosen to support the Stroke Association as its Charity of the Year between 2014 and 2016.

The company aims to raise at least £2 million for the Stroke Association over the course of the partnership, with every penny raised ensuring that we can provide recovery and activity grants to support 10,000 stroke survivors and their families.

We can't fund:

  • private medical treatment
  • labour costs (other than installation of white goods) including item removal and structural alterations
  • nursing home fees other than for respite care
  • debts and rent arrears.
