Different Strokes

Celebrating 20 years of reclaiming lives
after stroke through active peer support:

  • There are 152,000 strokes in the UK each year.
  • At least 1 in 4 strokes happen to someone of working age or younger.
  • Total people having strokes aged 20 to 64 increased by 25% from 1990 to 2010 worldwide.

Good luck to our lovely patron paracyclist Megan Giglia!

She's heading off to Rio for the Paralympics! Here she is being interviewed by fellow stroke survivor Oliver Lilburn about why being our patron is so important to her ..
