Stroke Association is the leading charity in the UK changing the world for people affected by stroke.
In the last 20 years the numbers of people dying of a stroke has halved while the number of major strokes has decreased by 40 per cent. More people than ever are benefiting from cutting-edge treatments and making full recoveries. And more people now understand the need to seek emergency treatment for stroke.
We’ve been at the heart of every one of these developments, championing the cause of stroke and stroke survivors.
Our research has helped to improve treatments and care which has saved tens of thousands of lives.
Our support services have helped hundreds of thousands of people get through one of the most frightening experiences of their lives and build a life after stroke.
And our campaigning has touched the lives of even more people through initiatives like the FAST campaign which we developed to help people recognise the signs of a stroke and take emergency action.
The Department of Health in England was so impressed with this campaign that they took it up in 2009 and promoted to millions of people.

If you have been affected by a stroke in any way, you may have many questions about what has happened and what is likely to happen in the future. You may be looking for information about stroke, practical advice and support, or simply someone to talk to.
The Stroke Helpline and Information Service is here to help. When the Helpline is closed or all our lines are busy, you can listen to recorded information about stroke or request a free information pack.
