Read about our who we are and what we do as a charity.
In this edition, we focus on the benefits of hobbies to stroke recovery. We also look at the latest research to reduce post-stroke disability and provide tips for finding a care home that's right for you.
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.
A stroke is not something you prepare for. So you’re going to have a lot of questions when it happens. That’s why we’re here. We’ve tackled some of the questions that you're likely to have, including details of how to find out more.
We strive to develop and extend partnerships in order to improve the quality of life after stroke and enhance stroke prevention.

This research will investigate the use of orthitics (for example, braces and splints) early on in a stroke survivor’s rehabilitation. The results will inform a larger study into early orthotic use after stroke.
Spatial neglect is caused when damage to the brain after stroke means that it no longer received information about one side of the body and/or world. Stroke survivors with spatial neglect might not be aware of anything happening on one side of their body. This research will investigate a computer based version of a new treatment for spatial neglect after stroke.
