The Life After Stroke Centre in Bromsgrove provides support for stroke survivors and their families through a range of activities that take place at the centre and in the wider community. These activities are all designed to enable you to make the best recovery possible following stroke. Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), the Life After Stroke Centre will remain closed until further notice. During this time, we have found new ways of connecting with our people by replacing our face to face activities with online fun and interactive zoom sessions. View our Zoom activity schedule for July 2020 and August 2020. If you’d like to find out more, call Nicola Miller on 07717 275800.

This research will test a new questionnaire which has been designed to measure the impact that stroke-related vision problems have on a stroke survivor’s quality of life.
Existing vision tests do not tell us how a patient’s life will be influenced by their vision problems. This project aims to understand how the results of vision tests relate to how stroke survivors will be able to function in their daily lives.
Local stroke survivors have joined in a new stroke research program at the Stroke Association’s Life After Stroke Centre in Bromsgrove on Monday 05 September. STARR (stroke, technology and risk reduction) is a new research program, which will help stroke survivors manage their risk factors for recurrent stroke: a stroke that happens after someone has their first stroke.
Our Life After Stroke Services are designed to provide the right support at the right time to ensure every stroke survivor makes the best possible recovery. Find out how you can commission our services in your area.
Most stroke and transient ischaemic attack (TIA) survivors are asked to take medicines, which some can find difficult. However, taking the medicines prescribed after a stroke, or TIA, and following lifestyle advice can reduce the chance of another stroke by 80%.
We help people's recovery by offering financial support to those most in need. Learn more about our Life After Stroke Grants.
Our Life After Stroke Awards recognise the achievements of everyone affected by stroke. Find out more about the events, winners and supporters.
Stroke changes lives. It can have a huge effect on you and your family. With the right help and support your stroke doesn't have to stop you from doing the things you want to do.
