Each year, our Helpline offers support, information, and a listening ear to thousands of people affected by stroke.
Vicki Bray is one of our friendly Helpline team. 'All kinds of people contact us, from stroke survivors and their families and friends, to NHS professionals, and employers supporting a stroke survivor to return to work,' she says. 'A lot of our calls are stroke survivors who may have had their stroke months or even years ago and need some reassurance or a listening ear.
'Many callers say they don't know where to start when calling for the first time, and that's OK. We understand that you may just need to talk through what's happened to you. If there's a question that we can't help you with directly, we will point you in the direction of someone who can.'
