Stroke Association. Rebuilding lives after stroke. 

When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do.

We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke. And it’s a team effort to get there. 

We provide specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support to rebuild their lives.
