Why partner with us

The wide ranging benefits to working with the Stroke Association are clear to see; from helping to change the lives of millions of stroke survivors and their families in towns and cities across the UK to partnering with us to fund ground breaking world leading research into stroke. Collaborating with the Stroke Association, the leading stroke charity in the UK, will also enable your company to reap many business advantages that we have the expertise to deliver.  Partnering with us will turn you into pioneers.

Stroke is an important issue to all businesses, their staff and customers. One in six people are affected by stroke in their lifetime, and 1.2 million survivors are struggling to cope with the effects of stroke today. This means that the people that businesses touch are also those that stroke touch.

Together we can tackle one of the biggest health issues of our time.

Together we can conquer stroke.

What our partners and supporters say

“Our partnership with the Stroke Association has engaged our workforce more than ever before. The charity and the cause is inspiring our people and bringing them together regardless of geography, roles and background. We’ve seen teams across the UK work together and having fun whilst fundraising for a common cause.

Being one of the largest and most community centric companies in the UK presents many challenges,  however the Stoke Association team’s passion and enthusiasm helps us raise money and awareness  amongst our 143,000 people and millions of customers. Their central and local teams throughout the UK provide daily support in helping with fundraising, awareness raising and improving colleague and customer advocacy for Royal Mail. They are a great charity focussing on a serious yet grossly underfunded cause. We are proud to support them.”

Gary Grange, Community Investment Manager. Royal Mail Group Communications (COTY partner 2014 – 2016)

“Supporting charities is something Herbert Smith Freehills has done for a long time. Yet our partnership with the Stroke Association brought out a new level of interaction and togetherness that we hadn’t seen in any other charity partner. Providing awareness talks with stroke survivors and blood pressure testing really gave the partnership a sense of purpose. As a business we learnt so much and were given opportunities to check our health which we may not have had without the Stroke Association. On top of this, the partnership was great fun and the team were great to work with. We took part in cycle rides, skydives, zip slides, quiz nights and much more. We are proud to have supported the Stroke Association and to have made a huge difference to the lives of stroke survivors. I would highly recommend any business supporting them as their next charity partner”

Jo Diggins, Senior Associate, Herbert Smith Freehills (COTY partner in 2014)

“Stroke is one of the biggest heath issues of our time. It is the last truly great health issue to be addressed in the UK. But stroke does not have the awareness levels or the fundraising that the cause deserves. You can be at the forefront of changing this situation. A partnership with the Stroke Association can deliver a bigger benefit to more people than any other charity partnership available. I urge your organisation to choose the Stroke Association as your next charity partner”.
