The Stroke Association is very pleased to announce a new media partnership with the Daily Express Newspaper for the Life After Stroke Awards 2015.
In this edition we're celebrating the courage of stroke survivors, including people like Pete, who recently won a Life After Stroke Award. A severe stroke left Pete with the communication disability, aphasia, but it also changed his whole outlook on life. He now volunteers tirelessly to helps other people who've had their lives turned upside down by stroke.
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.
In this edition, hear inspirational stories of younger people affected by stroke - like Cailin who had a stroke before she was born. We also have tips to help you with drop foot and financial advice with a focus on Personal Independence Payments (PIP).
