To mark Stroke Awareness Month 2021, we launched our Save Research campaign.
June is Aphasia Awareness Month. More than 350,000 people in the UK have aphasia, but still too little is known about it. Help us raise awareness and support the Communication Access Symbol initiative.
In stroke survivors, does the clinical effectiveness of 6 months treatment with fluoxetine depend upon its effects on synaptic plasticity in the brain? Can a drug used for depression help stroke recovery by changing connections between brain cells?
This year, June 2018, we have teamed up with other UK aphasia organisations and will be supporting the work of member organisations of the Aphasia Alliance, of which the Stroke Association is one.
Every year during June, organisations supporting people with aphasia work together to raise awareness. Around a third of people who have a stroke will experience aphasia. Greater awareness can mean easier communication and a better quality of life for a person with aphasia.
Free Wills Month returns during October 2020, to a large number of towns and cities across England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Throughout the month, anyone aged 55 and over can make or update their Will completely free of charge, with a trusted solicitor.
Learn about our chosen priority areas for action, which will guide us in our journey to better support all those affected by stroke.
The UK Stroke Assembly South was held on 3 - 4 July at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Stansted Airport. It was another great success, with over 160 people attending over the two days.
This year Speakability (now part of the Stroke Association) is launching a new #recogniseAphasia campaign and a new campaign flyer.
In this issue, we celebrate our Life After Stroke Award winners - inspirational people like Charlotte who made an incredible recovery after a stroke at the age of seven. We also take a look at our campaign report, Feeling overwhelmed, which focuses on the emotional impact of stroke and outlines our work to make sure people get the right assessment and support.
