The Stroke Association is the only UK charity solely concerned with combating stroke in people of all ages, acting as a voice for everyone affected by stroke. Approximately 150,000 people have a stroke each year in the UK – on average that’s one every five minutes. Stroke is the leading cause of severe disability and claims the lives of over 67,000 people each year. A stroke is a brain attack - it happens due to a clot or a bleed in the brain, which causes brain cells to die. This can happen to anyone of any age and the effects can be devastating. Our mission is to prevent strokes, and reduce their effect through providing services, campaigning, education and research.
Stroke Association Jersey is a local branch of the Stroke Association and one of the main aims of the Stroke Association Jersey is to support as full a life after stroke as possible for all stroke survivors and their families in Jersey through our Stroke Recovery Services.
