At the Stroke Association, we support people to make the best possible recovery following a stroke. We often do this by offering financial support to those most in need.

A Life After Stroke Grant provides a one-off payment of up to £300 to fund vital home or personal equipment, or funding support to help you 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 Stroke Support services, please ask your coordinator for further information.

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

Our funding

We were selected as Royal Mail’s Charity of the Year in 2014, and we worked in partnership with the company for over two years. In March 2017, we were able to announce that £2 million had been raised to help stroke survivors.

Every penny raised through the partnership is funding our Life After Stroke Grants, supporting up to 10,000 families as they build a life after stroke.

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.
