We are the UK’s leading charity dedicated to conquering stroke. We deliver stroke services across the UK, campaign for better stroke care, invest in research and fund-raise to expand our reach to as many stroke survivors as possible.
There are over 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK with 100,000 strokes happening in the UK each year. That’s one stroke every five minutes. Our mission is to prevent strokes and achieve life after stroke through providing services, campaigning, education and research.
Even though you are now twice as likely to survive a stroke compared to 20 years ago, stroke is still the fourth single largest cause of death in the UK.
We know we need to change how people think about stroke and challenge the myths surrounding it. We push for greater awareness of stroke and its warning signs and campaign for better stroke care.
Our vision is for a world where there are fewer strokes and all those touched by stroke get the help they need.
- strokes can and should be prevented
- everyone has the right to make the best recovery they can after stroke
- research has the power to save lives and ensure people make the best recovery they can.
