A stroke can happen at any age. There are over 400 childhood strokes a year in the UK, affecting babies, children and young people.
The Childhood Stroke Support Service is available for children, families and young people affected by stroke in childhood. The service is a part of the Childhood Stroke Project - a collaboration between the Stroke Association and Evelina London Children's Hospital.
Stroke can happen to anyone, including children. The causes of stroke for children are very different from those for adults. This guide explains what can cause stroke in children and how it is treated.
Childhood stroke can affect the whole family. The Stroke Association is here to support you as much as we can. We can provide resources and information related to peer support, stroke, brain injury and hemiplegia organisations, education, advocacy, and related conditions, as well as handbooks, storybooks, and videos.

Childhood stroke events are opportunities for parents and carers of children affected by stroke to come together, find peer support networks and access information and resources relevant to them.
The Childhood Stroke Project is a collaboration between us and Evelina London Children's Hospital. It's funded by the Margaret Giffen Charitable Trust. The service provides tailored information and support for children, young people and families affected by stroke.
