How your support helps

The difference you make

When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. Life changes instantly and recovery is tough.

But the brain can adapt. Our specialist support, research and campaigning are only possible with the courage and determination of the stroke community.

With more donations and support from you, we can rebuild even more lives.
