Every year 100,000 people have a stroke and a 1/4 of these people are under the age of 65. That’s 25,000 younger people whose lives are changed in an instant. Stroke is also the single biggest cause of disability in the UK, but it’s not always the visible disabilities that stroke survivors have to contend with, debilitating fatigue, cognitive problems and personality changes can also be a lifelong challenge, preventing them from returning to work or bringing up a young family. Different Strokes promotes independent stroke recovery, so younger stroke survivors can reclaim their lives. It’s run by young stroke survivors for other young stroke survivors.
