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.
