Commission our Stroke Support services
There are more than 100,000 strokes in the UK each year. Almost two-thirds of stroke survivors will leave hospital with a disability, and the demand for ongoing care and support is growing.
We believe that with the right support, people can still enjoy life. With over 30 years of experience working with stroke survivors and their families, we know the importance of responsive, tailored and high-quality care at all stages of the stroke pathway.
Our Stroke Support services are designed to provide the right support at the right time to ensure every stroke survivor makes the best possible recovery. We currently offer a range of services covering the whole stroke pathway through our Stroke Recovery Service and individual service elements.
- Reduce hospital readmissions.
- Shorten hospital stays.
- Facilitate better integration of care.
- Save other statutory expenditure.
- Meet current government imperatives and requirements of national stroke strategies across the UK.
This short animation describes the journey of one stroke survivor, and demonstrates how the service supports him and his family along their stroke recovery journey.
Our services impact
We recently collected data to show the impact our services have on quality of life following a stroke. The results show that stroke survivors and carers believe that recovery after stroke has become less overwhelming with our support, and there are significant savings to the health and social care sector.

We have also recently commissioned a very positive qualitative evaluation of our Stroke Recovery Service. Please read our Stroke Recovery Service executive summary.
