20 years of investing in vital stroke research

Since 1991, the Stroke Association has spent more than £55 million supporting vital stroke research. This research has had a real impact on our understanding of stroke, on the way stroke is treated in the UK, and ultimately on rebuilding the lives of those affected by stroke.

In our report 'Saving lives - 20 years of investing in vital stroke research', we highlight the difference that our research has made to the lives of people affected by stroke including real-life case studies from stroke survivors, family members and researchers.
