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.
Since his stroke in 2016, Paul McLean, from County Armagh, has committed himself to supporting other survivors through volunteering, fundraising and, most recently, by becoming one of the stars of our Rebuilding Lives campaign.
Read about our past campaigns and what they've achieved.

What does the Comprehensive Spending Review 2015 mean for stroke prevention, treatment and care?
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.
