In 2017 we ran two national UK Stroke Assembly events reaching out to over 235 people.

For the first time we held an event in Stansted, Essex, giving a greater voice to those affected by stroke and connecting with a wider audience who had never attended a UKSA before.

Read the key messages that were identified from the 2017 UK Stroke Assembly North and South events. These will be shared with stroke professionals at the UK Stroke Forum in November.

Share and Inspire Films

At past UK Stroke Assembly events, we've shared a series of short films called Share and Inspire films. These share personal experiences of stroke and how those affected have moved forward in their recovery or taken action.

Topics include:

  • getting involved in research
  • stroke support groups
  • becoming a counsellor and supporting others
  • taking action on stroke and becoming a volunteer
  • vision problems after stroke.
