The Stroke Association is looking for an enthusiastic and motivated individual to join our team to carry out our work in the North Devon area.

In this project, the aim is to demonstrate that failure of drainage of fluid from the grey and white matter of the brain is a mechanism underlying SVD.
Beyond impaired language function, people with aphasia report a range of psychosocial health problems which negatively affect their wellbeing, including reduced confidence and social isolation. These psychosocial problems are not adequately addressed by healthcare services. This study will pilot a new group-based singing intervention for improving the psychosocial health of people with aphasia.
As a driver you will provide a safe, comfortable transport service to stroke survivors, and sometimes their carers and families, so that they can continue to feel part of their local community.
Our Life After Stroke Services support over 60,000 stroke survivors, carers and families every year to ensure they get the help they need. Befrienders and peer supporters offer support across all services to stroke survivors.
As a Communication Service Supporter you will be supporting stroke survivors whose communication has been affected by their stroke to develop new strategies to aid their communication.
Media case studies help raise awareness of stroke through sharing personal experiences and representing the Stroke Association by speaking out in the local and national media.
As a charity our work relies heavily on the generosity of our supporters. As a Fundraiser you will be supporting our fundraising activities on a national or local level to ensure we can continue to support stroke survivors.
