The Stroke Association

The Stroke Association is the UK’s leading charity for anyone affected by stroke. Our mission is to prevent strokes, and for those affected by this devastating condition to get the help and support they need for a life after stroke. Stroke is the world’s second biggest killer and the burden of stroke is set to double worldwide by 2030. With 1 in 6 of us having a stroke in our lifetimes we must act now to conquer stroke.

We believe in the power of research to save lives, prevent stroke and ensure that people make the best recovery they can after a stroke. We are investing in the next generation of stroke researchers to pioneer our lifesaving research.

High blood pressure is the biggest cause of stroke. That’s why we run a prevention campaign called Know Your Blood Pressure. Last year we took over 56,500 people’s blood pressures. On average we refer three in 10 people to seek their GP’s advice for high blood pressure.
