Stephen McAloon talks about his experience of volunteering with us.
At the Stroke Association, we support people to make the best possible recovery following a stroke. One of the ways we help is through our Life After Stroke grants. Our LAS Grants volunteers apply for grants on behalf of stroke survivors and in doing so offer financial support to those most in need.
Maeve Boyle talks about her experience of volunteering with us.
Support stroke survivors by volunteering to become a My Stroke Guide buddy or a Peer Supporter.
About 30% of stroke survivors will experience communication difficulties after their stroke, which can make daily living extremely challenging. Our Communication Service Supporters support stroke survivors whose communication has been affected by their stroke to develop new strategies to aid their communication.
By volunteering with us, you can change the lives of those affected by stroke, and it could change your life too. Whether you’re looking to meet new people, develop your skills or support stroke survivors, our volunteer roles provide opportunities to make a difference and do something you enjoy.
Our work relies heavily on the generosity of our supporters. Our Community Fundraisers support our fundraising activities on a local level, to ensure we can continue to support stroke survivors.
