Childhood stroke can affect the whole family. The Stroke Association is here to support you as much as we can. We can provide resources and information related to peer support, stroke, brain injury and hemiplegia organisations, education, advocacy, and related conditions.
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.
Find out why you may experience problems with your vision after stroke, the different kind of problems that can occur, and what treatments may be able to help.
Find out how your taste and smell can change after a stroke, why it happens and what may help you cope with the changes.
Running an organisation the size of the Stroke Association is a huge undertaking, and our offices around the UK ensure that our charity runs smoothly. Our Office and Administration Supporters provide regular administrative support to our head office, our regional offices and our Stroke Support teams across the UK.
UK Stroke Forum 2016 took place from Monday to Wednesday (28-30 November) at the ACC in Liverpool. UK Stroke Forum is the largest multidisciplinary stroke event in the UK, attracting over 1400 delegates from across the stroke care pathway.
When you have a stroke you need information you can trust. That’s why we produce high-quality information for stroke survivors and their families.
