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.
Medical research is essential to develop new treatments and therapies for stroke so that patients in the UK can get the best possible care. Clinical trials are conducted to test whether a new medical intervention is safe and effective and these trials often rely on the participation of volunteer stroke survivors.
Since 1991, the Stroke Association has spent more than £55 million supporting vital stroke research. This research has had a real impact on our understanding of stroke, on the way stroke is treated in the UK, and ultimately on the lives of those affected by stroke.
