Our vision is for there to be fewer strokes, and for people affected by stroke to get the help they need to live the best life they can.
Our core purpose is to be the trusted voice of stroke survivors and their families. We want to drive better outcomes in stroke prevention, treatment and lifelong support for everyone affected by stroke.
We provide specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support to rebuild their lives.
This is only possible with the courage and determination of the stroke community, the generosity of our supporters and the hard work of our amazing people.
