Different Strokes promotes independent stroke recovery and aim to dispel the myths and stigma surrounding stroke in younger people

Each year there are 100,000 strokes in the UK; 1 in 4 of these occur in somebody of working age or younger. The team at Different Strokes have personal experience of the realities of life after stroke, with the charity being run by young stroke survivors for young stroke survivors.

Different Strokes aim to empower younger stroke survivors to reclaim their lives

Funds raised will support the charities core services, which includes a telephone support line, peer support groups, information packs, resources for children to understand what has happened to their parents, networking online groups, 30 national face to face support groups, daily online exercise sessions, and a teen and young adult befriending service.
