In 2015 we supported 4,218 stroke survivors across Wales, 3,313 of whom were new to our services and we provided direct care to over 619 carers.
Our 452 volunteers donated 20,045 hours of their time to support stroke survivors, equating to a contribution to the value of almost £261,190.
Welsh Elections 2016
The Welsh Assembly elections took place on 5 May this year.
As a campaigning organisation, Stroke Association in Wales is always working to demonstrate to politicians the vital importance of good stroke prevention, treatment, and care.
We called on all political parties to support four key priorities for the new Welsh Government:
- Ensuring the best stroke care and support
- Building a strong stroke research base
- Preventing more avoidable strokes
- Mandatory basic training in stroke care for care home staff
