Stroke Association

We are the UK’s leading stroke charity and deliver support to stroke survivors and carers, we build relationships with people and organisations, to make positive change in their communities for people affected by stroke, give voice to those affected by stroke, work with decision-makers in government and healthcare, to make stroke a higher priority and develop well-funded policies, we help to fund and deliver stroke research, with a focus on projects that stand to make the most impact.


Our Stroke Recovery Service is here for stroke survivors, their families and carers to ensure they have the support they need to rebuild their lives post-stroke and into the longer-term. The impact of stroke can last a lifetime, affecting a person’s physical health, emotional wellbeing, family and finances.

The Stroke Recovery Service makes sure that people affected by stroke have their needs placed at the centre of their recovery journey. Working in collaboration with others across the stroke pathway and within the wider community, we help ensure people have an integrated and seamless experience of care and that they receive the support they need, when and where they need it.

Upon referral to the service, we work alongside stroke survivors, their families and carers to develop and deliver a personalised stroke support plan. This is based on what they tell us is important to them, including secondary prevention, emotional needs, and their goals.

In addition we support stroke survivors and carers affected by aphasia (speech and language difficulties)

The service also provides high quality personalised information and tools for individuals to support recovery and life after stroke.


The service will receive referrals for all those affected by stroke who are registered with either a Norfolk or Waveney GP and over the age of 18.
