We are here to:

  • Listen and talk through your situation. Often, it's easier to talk to someone you don't know.

  • Help you talk through your options, so you feel able to make decisions and more confident to take the next step.

  • Let you know about what support's available and how to access it so you're able to move forward in your recovery.

  • Provide information about stroke. This could include sending you leaflets and factsheets about stroke through the post or by email.

  • Give you information on ways to reduce your risk of stroke.

  • Discuss rehabilitation and recovery after stroke.

Our service remit

  • We're not trained counsellors and don't offer counselling, but we can listen.

  • 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 and tell you 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.
