We provide high quality, up-to-date stroke information for stroke patients, their families and carers.
Every year there are approximately 152,000 strokes in the UK. That's one stroke every three and a half minutes. Most people affected are over 65, but anyone can have a stroke, including children and even babies. The Stroke Association provides a number of vital support services across the country to help those affected by stroke to regain their lives.
Stroke changes lives. It can have a huge effect on you and your family. You will most likely want to know as much as you can about what practical, emotional and financial support is available.
If you’ve been affected by stroke in any way, we’re here for you. Whether you’re a stroke survivor yourself, a member of your family or a friend has had a stroke, you work with people affected by stroke, or you want to know how to prevent a stroke, please get in touch.
Search our website for clubs and groups in your area. If you would like any additional information about stroke and related topics, you can download our full range of leaflets and factsheets. We can also signpost you to services provided by other organisations.
