By volunteering with us you can change the lives of those affected by stroke, and it could change your life too.
Our volunteer roles provide opportunities to make a difference and do something you enjoy. You can also meet new people, develop your skills and support stroke survivors with their recovery and rehabilitation.
Take a look at the following opportunities below:
Meet people in the stroke community
Our stroke community is ever growing and volunteering is a great way to get involved. It gives you the opportunity to become part of a network of volunteers who support and share learning. By joining our team, you will get to meet and spend time with a variety of people.
Give something back
When our volunteers tell us what they get from their volunteering, one of the most common answers is that it helps them feel like they are giving something back. Many of our volunteers have either had a stroke themselves or have supported a family member or friend who has had a stroke. Volunteering gives them the chance to support other people affected by stroke.
Use existing skills that you may have
Many of our roles will enable you to use and develop skills that you already have to support the work of our charity.
Lean new skills
When you join us as a volunteer, we’ll provide training in areas that you may not have had any experience in before. We’ll support you every step of the way and help you build new skills.
Enjoy your time volunteering
Whether you’re interested in fundraising, helping at events, supporting stroke survivors or undertaking administration activities, we will try to make sure your experience is an enjoyable one.
Build your confidence
When volunteering with us you’ll often try and experience new things. Many of our volunteers have told us that volunteering has really helped to build their confidence and are doing things that they never thought possible.
There are over 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK and more than 100,000 strokes in the UK each year - that is around one stroke every five minutes. With your support, we can provide peer-to-peer support to stroke survivors, provide vital services, campaign for better stroke care and fund research to find better treatments.
