£1 does amazing things

Each year there are 100,000 strokes in the UK; 1 in 4 of these occurs in somebody of working age or younger.

At Different Strokes, they are on a mission to empower younger stroke survivors and their families as they navigate the challenges of reclaiming their lives after stroke.

Why them? Because they get it. From staff to volunteers and trustees, their dedicated team understands the hurdles, whether returning to work, parenting, coping with change or battling isolation.
