We anticipate a shortfall of £1.5 million in our funding programme this year to resume current research and support vital new projects. This could have a catastrophic knock-on effect for stroke research and delay access to important new life-changing treatments that allow people to rebuild their lives after stroke.
There is evidence that during the coronavirus pandemic fewer people have been recorded to have transient ischaemic attack (TIA) or stroke. That’s why the Stroke Association is urging people to continue to act fast and call 999 if they experience signs of stroke.

SAFE is currently involved in several European research projects. You can find out more about these projects hoping to improve treatment for stroke patients.
