On Monday 16th June the Stroke Association were invited to share how research we funded has changed lives at the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Medical Research Summer Reception, entitled, "A Healthy Future for UK Medical Research".
Goal A of our corporate strategy is to make stroke the priority it needs to be.
Stroke is the biggest cause of complex disability worldwide, with an estimated 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK today. Living with the long term impact of the condition can be devastating, yet this new report suggests that research funding dedicated to stroke remains disproportionately small compared to other diseases.
The Stroke Association has joined forces with 14 other charities and Sport England to launch a new campaign: “We Are Undefeatable”. The campaign aims to support people living with health conditions to build physical activity and exercise into their lives and to celebrate every victory, big or small.
We’re excited to announce that the Stroke Association has been selected to go through to the employee vote stage to become the Mace Foundation’s Charity of the Year for 2018.
We’re excited to announce that we've been selected to go through to the staff vote stage for the ISS Facility Services charity of the year partnership.
Recently, the British Heart Foundation launched a campaign calling for more funding into stroke research, and outlined their commitment as a leading funder of stroke research.
There are a wide range of benefits to partnering with us, from helping to change the lives of millions of stroke survivors and their families in towns and cities across the UK to working with us to fund ground breaking world leading research into stroke.
Juliet Bouverie, Chief Executive of the Stroke Association, took the opportunity to tell Her Majesty The Queen about stroke survivors' amazing recoveries at her OBE award ceremony.
