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.
After a stroke many stroke survivors and carers may become socially isolated as they are no longer able to access the activities and groups they did prior to the stroke. As a Stroke Café Volunteer, you will assist in the running of Stroke Cafés.
If you have had a stroke or are have aphasia we would like you to join us in a friendly atmosphere to have fun and sing along. Everyone is welcome and we support carers to join us as well. No singing experience is required.
Support stroke survivors by volunteering to become a My Stroke Guide buddy or a Peer Supporter.
Support voluntary groups by volunteering to become a Stroke Group Supporter or a Voluntary Group Committee Member.
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.
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.
Volunteers are an essential part of the Stroke Association team and have an enormous impact on what we are able to achieve and the range of services and support we are able to provide. We are committed to providing the best volunteering experience that we can.
Our service groups play an important role in ensuring that stroke survivors don’t become socially isolated. They also help to build the confidence and self-esteem of the people who attend. As a Service Group Supporter, you will be part of a team assisting in the running of one or more of these service groups.
Our voluntary groups play an important role in ensuring that stroke survivors do not become socially isolated. They also help to build the confidence and self-esteem of the people who attend. Our Stroke Group Supporters assist in the running of one, or sometimes more, of these local voluntary groups
