What is the UK Stroke Club Conference?

The UK Stroke Club Conference is an annual event that brings together those involved in running and volunteering at stroke clubs and groups. Each year the event has grown in success and numbers.

The event is an opportunity to:

  • network with like-minded people
  • hear the latest news from the stroke community
  • share experiences and ideas
  • find out more about the support available for groups and members.

Future events

The next UK Stroke Club Conference will be held on Friday 29 – Saturday 30 September 2017 at the East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham. Invites to the main contacts of all clubs and groups will be sent in June.

If you have any suggestions about what you'd like to see on the programme, please email clubconference@stroke.org.uk or call 01527 903 917.

If you're not part of a club or group, or would like to attend an event as an individual, you may be interested in the UK Stroke Assembly. This event brings together those people affected by stroke to share their hopes and concerns in a UK-wide forum. 

UK Stroke Club Conference 2016

The UK Stroke Club Conference 2016 took place on Friday 30 September – Saturday 1 October 2016, at the East Midlands Conference Centre, Nottingham. Over 200 guests attended from 83 stroke clubs and groups.
