Are you at risk of stroke?
A stroke can happen to anyone, but some things increase your risk of a stroke. It’s important to know what the risk factors are, and how to reduce your risk.
How to reduce your risk
Many strokes can be prevented. Although you cannot change some of the things that increase your risk of stroke, like your age, there are others that you can change.
Childhood stroke can affect babies (including in the womb), children and young people. More than 400 children are diagnosed with strokes every year in the UK.
