  • Provide input and give feedback on how our services are delivered locally for people affected by stroke.

  • Support projects, and the development of plans and services across the East of England.

  • Provide advice about how best we can reach more people affected by stroke.

  • Provide new ideas for ways of working to meet local priorities.  

We are looking for people who: 

  • Have lived experience of stroke whether this is as a stroke survivorcarer or family member who supports a stroke survivor. 

  • With support can participate in group discussions, ask questions and be honest.

  • Are willing to be a voice for people affected by stroke in the East of England.
