We organise the largest multidisciplinary stroke conference and exhibition in the UK, bringing together professionals from all stages of the stroke pathway to learn the latest developments in research and practice.
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.
The Stroke Association works with and for stroke survivors. We work with all stakeholders who have an interest in stroke, including the pharmaceutical industry, to achieve a common goal - to conquer stroke. Our guidelines ensure our approach to working with pharmaceutical companies is transparent and cannot compromise our independence.
