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.
We're proud to have a brilliant array of high profile supporters who go the extra mile to raise awareness of our work and help us support and campaign for stroke survivors.
Whether it’s taking part in a fundraising run, meeting the people we support, or giving time for media interviews, we would like to thank everyone for being such an important part of our family.
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.
My Stroke Guide is an online tool designed to help individuals self-manage their own condition after a stroke. My Stroke Guide Buddies visit stroke survivors and their carers’ in a variety of locations and settings and introduce them to this tool.

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.
Join us for one of our favourite annual events, the Royal Parks Half Marathon. Starting and finishing in the stunning Hyde Park, this popular race sees over 16,000 runners take on the 13.1 mile route through central London.
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.
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.
