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.
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.
