Our service remit

- We're not medically trained and do not provide medical advice, but we can explain stroke in plain English and help you understand some of the medical jargon.
- We're not able to provide detailed financial and benefits advice, but we can give general information, tell you about our Life After Stroke Grant and where you can get further support.
- We're not legally trained and do not provide legal advice, but we can give you information about organisations that can.
- We’re not able to provide an advocacy service, but we can search for advocacy services in your local area.
- We can’t recommend specific products or services provided by others, but we can tell you where to find this information.
