Make a difference today - #diffstrokesfamily

There are 152,000 strokes a year in the UK and 1 in 4 happen to people under 65 years old.  In fact, the number of people having strokes aged 20 to 64 increased by 25% from 1990 to 2010 worldwide!  

Please help us today to make a positive difference to younger stroke survivors and their families. From jumping out of an aeroplane, running a marathon, to taking information leaflets to your local hospital or GP surgery, there are so many ways to get involved.

Greg says; "My whole outlook on life has changed since getting involved with Different Strokes.  Raising over £1000 by jumping out of a plane was a fantastic experience and my way of giving back and saying thanks."
