About the role

Making sure that as many people as possible know about stroke and the Stroke Association is a challenge we can’t achieve on our own.

As a Stroke Ambassador, you will use your skills, experience and passion to represent the Stroke Association in your local community.

You will proactively reach out and engage people in our work by communicating our key messages and organisational policy positions, increasing support for the organisation, sharing prevention messages, and campaigning for care and support for stroke survivors.

In this flexible role there are three pathways for Stroke Ambassadors: Awareness, Prevention and Campaigning. You can focus on one area, or across all three.

About us

Stroke Association. Rebuilding lives after stroke.

When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. It happens every five minutes in the UK and changes lives instantly. Recovery is tough, but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the brain can adapt. Our specialist support, research and campaigning are only possible with the courage and determination of the stroke community.

We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke. And it’s a team effort to get there.

We provide specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support to rebuild their lives.

Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. Help us rebuild them and join our team.
