Our supporter promise
We speak with and communicate to our supporters in many different ways, including via appeal letters, telephone calls, raffles, TV advertising, social media and via our website. We are enormously grateful to everyone who supports us and we want to make sure that everyone we connect with feels respected and valued.
Someone in the UK has a stroke every five minutes, and each year we provide support services, information and advice to over 100,000 people. As a charity, we rely on the generosity of the public to ensure that we can be there for people who are living with the devastation that stroke can bring.
Protecting and respecting our supporters is of the utmost importance to us.
