An investigation of whether functional strength training can improve the ability of stroke survivors to walk and use their arm and hand at least 1 year after stroke
We currently offer a range of services covering the whole stroke pathway that supports over 60,000 stroke survivors, carers and families every year, to ensure they get the help they need.
The stroke group provides information and support to stroke survivors and their carers. The group always offers a warm welcome, friendly face and the opportunity to talk to someone who understands what you are going through because they've been through it too.
Cambridgeshire Information, Advice and Support Service provides high quality information, practical advice and emotional support following a stroke. Whether you are a stroke survivor, carer or family member, we will begin working with you after a stroke. We will continue to provide the support you need, both at home and in the wider community.
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.

Could an ARNI-based rehabilitation approach benefit stroke survivors?
About one third of stroke survivors are left with aphasia. This is a language disorder that disrupts the production and comprehension of speech, as well as reading and writing. This study will investigate whether a support group intervention can be delivered remotely to people with aphasia through a virtual island platform called Eva Park.
After a stroke, many people will not be able to drive and may find it challenging to access local activities, services and events. As a result, many people lose their independence and can become socially isolated.
