The Stroke Association is thrilled to be partnering with SameYou. Launched in March 2019 by Game of Thrones actor Emilia Clarke, SameYou aims to transform recovery care for young adults following hospital treatment for brain injury and stroke.
The Stroke Association and SameYou are joining forces to invest in research to transform stroke rehabilitation services, and to tackle the stigma of stroke by raising awareness of this devastating condition among young adults.
Juliet Bouverie, Chief Executive of the Stroke Association UK, said: "A stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. It can strike anyone at any time and when stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you."
"We’re the only charity working across the UK to rebuild lives after stroke. Our work is a team effort - it takes the determination of stroke survivors and carers, the generosity of supporters and the dedication of the healthcare and research communities. That’s why we’re delighted to be partnering with Emilia Clarke and SameYou to raise awareness of stroke in younger adults, to transform stroke rehabilitation services, and to tackle the stigma attached to stroke."
