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.
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.

Support stroke survivors by volunteering to become a My Stroke Guide buddy or a Peer Supporter.
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.
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.
