About the Organisation

Stroke Association. Rebuilding lives after stroke.

When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. It happens every five minutes in the UK and changes lives instantly. Recovery is tough, but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the brain can adapt.


We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke. And it’s a team effort to get there.


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.


We’re working to improve the diversity of our team.  Because we know that individuality leads to a richer experience for our people and better support for those affected by stroke.


We strongly encourage people from all backgrounds to apply. And we’re particularly looking to increase the number of applications from those with lived experience of stroke and those from under-represented communities. 


Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. Help us rebuild them and join our team.
