The Western HSCT Stroke Recovery Service in Northern Ireland provides high quality information, practical advice and emotional support following a stroke. Whether you are a stroke survivor, carer or family member, we will begin working with you after a stroke. We will continue to provide the support you need, both at home and in the wider community.
This year Speakability (now part of the Stroke Association) is launching a new #recogniseAphasia campaign and a new campaign flyer.
In January, NHS England announced their Long Term Plan, in which stroke has been named as a new national priority. It also includes sections on both stroke care as well as cardiovascular disease.
Our campaign aims to secure a commitment from the government for a new stroke strategy to improve the care, support and treatment of stroke survivors.

We believe in life after stroke. That’s why we actively campaign for better stroke care, working with politicians of all parties to ensure stroke remains high on the political agenda. It's why we fund research into finding new treatments, and also ways of reducing the risk of stroke across the UK. Find out what we're upto across Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

In our new advert, survivors describe experiencing life changing strokes in their own words. Stroke is serious, but it doesn’t have to be a life sentence. Recovery is tough but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, it is possible. Together we can support stroke survivors in rebuilding their lives.
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.
