We believe in life after stroke. That’s why we actively campaign for better stroke care, working with politicians of all parties to ensure stroke remains high on the political agenda. Find out what we're up to across England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
We are excited about the new National Stroke Programme. Our campaigning in England will help ensure this Programme is delivered.
It's a huge task, but one that we are determined to succeed with. We'd love you to help us deliver life-changing improvements for people affected by stroke right across England, whether preventing stroke in the first place, making sure people get the right treatment in the crucial first few hours after a stroke, or giving people the ongoing support they need when rebuilding their lives.
The Stroke Association in Scotland wants to influence and encourage the Scottish Government and Health Boards. The Stroke Association wants to work together to organise solutions to make the benefits of 24/7 hyper acute stroke care available to people across Scotland.
The Stroke Association communicate the views of stroke survivors and their family members and carers to policymakers, the NHS and local government. The Stroke Association campaigns to improve services for all those affected by stroke in Wales. This is so all stroke patients and survivors can rebuild their lives and make the best possible recovery.
