Strokes are a serious health issue that affects tens of thousands of individuals and their families every year. Fortunately, organisations like the Stroke Association provide essential support and resources to help those affected by strokes navigate the challenges that arise after such a life-changing event. Let’s take a look at the mission of the Stroke Association and explore various ways in which we can all contribute to their invaluable work.
The Stroke Association stands as the leading charity in the UK committed to supporting stroke survivors and their families. Since its establishment in 1992, the association has played a crucial role in transforming the lives of stroke survivors through the provision of practical advice, emotional support, and rehabilitation services. Find out more about how the Stroke Association helps to empower stroke survivors.
Not only do the Stroke Association provide direct support and care for people that have strokes and their families but for over 30 years, the Stroke Association has supported vital research by investing over £56m into research that covers all areas of stroke treatment and care. Such efforts are essential to beating stroke, for example, the Stroke Association funded some of the early studies into internationally recognised FAST test, Face, Arms, Speech, Time. Thanks to ongoing research into new procedures and early identification techniques, deaths from stroke have reduced by nearly 50% in the last 25 years.
