Let’s Conquer Stroke

We are a charity organisation based in the UK working to conquer stroke

About Us

We want to beat Stroke

We are passionate about reducing stroke everywhere by the training of professionals and raising public awareness on the causes and symptoms of stroke in the community. This is done through workshops, articles and the development of videos and other learning tools. Stroke Care International also seeks to support stroke survivors and their carers through Stroke Support Groups. Stroke Care International acts as an advocate to health services and government departments to ensure that Stroke is prioritised as a major health issue.

The positive mood swings and strength that comes whenever stroke survivors come together and meet fellow patients with the same condition is enormous. The togetherness and comfort they find in one another’s company, the motivation and encouragement they give to themselves, the joy of knowing that they are not alone in their plight and that they can still serve as source of encouragement to others is what has inspired my desire to create a forum for such opportunities through support groups.”
