  • making suggestions and exploring the options available to you
  • discussing rehabilitation and recovery after stroke
  • pointing you towards people and services that offer support after a stroke
  • putting you in touch with relevant local and national organisations
  • telling you how to reduce your risk of stroke
  • sending leaflets and factsheets with information about stroke
  • directing you to further sources of information and useful resources.

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 can provide general information, tell you about our Life After Stroke Grant, and direct you to relevant contacts and resources.
  • We're not legally trained and do not provide legal advice, but we can explain how to access this from a legal professional.
  • We are not able to provide an advocacy service, but we can search for  advocacy services in your local area.
  • We cannot recommend specific products or services provided by others, but we can tell you where to find this information and about the services the Stroke Association provides.
