UK Early Researcher Award for Mrs Jane Horne, Stroke Association Postgraduate Fellow
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).
Life After Stroke Award winners Bethany, Marvin and Marcia explain why they’re striking back against stroke. And find out how you can get involved in campaigning, the future of our research and developing aphasia information.
Stroke survivors Lorraine, David and Andrew share their experiences of aphasia and how they are finding new ways to communicate, and we celebrate the achievements of our Life After Stroke Award winners.
Six-year-old stroke survivor Ollie and his mum Nicola look forward to taking part in Step Out for Stroke. Plus find out how you can use gardening to aid your recovery after stroke.
