Help us give a national voice to stroke.
Join the National Stroke Foundation in a series of forums, starting in July and to be held in six state capitals, to tell us first-hand about your experience of stroke. We want to listen to your stories, feelings, experiences and hopes of life after stroke.
With these stroke survivor (and carer) forums we are calling on the stroke community to help the National Stroke Foundation define its priorities for the next five years. As the nation’s only organisation dedicated exclusively to reducing the incidence of stroke and ending the suffering associated with this disease, we feel it is time for us to take stock and see what our next important steps will be.
Our organisation exists to improve the lives of everyone affected by stroke and we can best do this by inviting every stroke survivor, carer and family member to come along and tell us what will make a difference to your lives. What isn’t working, what should change, how can we go about it? Let’s talk. If you want to be a part of this important process then mobilise your stroke community – friends, families and carers – to join in a state-based forum on these dates:
