Benefits and financial assistance
It can be hard to cope with the financial aftermath of a stroke. This is not only true for stroke survivors, but also their families and carers. But support is available for you, if you can't work for a while or have a disability, as well as for carers.
This guide aims to explain clearly the benefits that exist and how you can get them. These include financial assistance for being out of work, like Jobseeker's Allowance and Statutory Sick Pay, as well as grants for one-off expenses. This guide also offers a list of organisations that can provide you with advice and support.
