Support stroke survivors by volunteering to become a My Stroke Guide buddy or a Peer Supporter.
At the Stroke Association, we support people to make the best possible recovery following a stroke. One of the ways we can help is through offering financial support to those most in need. These are our Life After Stroke Grants.
Whether you'll be able to return to work and what you're going to do if you can't may be causing you a lot of worry.
A stroke doesn't have to stop you from going on holiday. There are plenty of ways to take a break, it may just take a little extra planning.
Our leisure time is valuable and taking part in hobbies and interests is an important part of life after stroke. You may want to return to interests you enjoyed before your stroke, or try out some new ones. We've got some ideas that may help you.
Many people find that their financial situation changes after they have a stroke. This section describes the main benefits, credits and grants that are available from the government.
Here are the answers to our most frequently asked questions.
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.
Stroke survivors and carers may need a wide range of support to help with their stroke recovery. Peer support from other stroke survivors and carers can really make a difference here.
Your recovery from a stroke isn't limited to the time you spend in hospital. When you're ready to leave hospital, your stroke team will work with you to agree and arrange the support you need to continue your recovery at home.
