Social distancing doesn't have to mean you are alone. We are here to support everyone to rebuild their lives after stroke.

We know that isolation can be difficult and having limited contact with the outside world could have a damaging effect on our mental health and wellbeing. We want you to join our Stroke Assembly community to find support, access tips and techniques and discover ways we can stay connected with each other.

Sadly, we aren’t able to invite you to a face to face event this year. Instead, we're bringing the UK Stroke Assembly 2020 to you. We'll provide online resources, workshops and materials to support your recovery at home.

From Wednesday 2 September to Wednesday 7 October, we'll be hosting weekly webinars and a range of activities to keep you engaged with our community and to ensure everyone is able to find the support they need.
