What makes us different

We have personal experience of life after stroke. Most of our staff, volunteers and trustees are stroke survivors, family members, or have a close personal connection to stroke. We recognise that younger stroke survivors and family members are the experts in stroke recovery and rehabilitation. We consult with them regularly to make sure that our services are relevant and personalised.

We listen and we understand.

We treat everyone as individuals

We collaborate.

We work with others and learn and share what we know to embed change and continuous improvement

We have integrity

We are honest and trustworthy and take responsibility for what we do

We are agile

We are flexible, resourceful and resilient

We motivate

Statutory stroke services often assume that all recovery takes place within six months of stroke but our experience shows that both physical and emotional recovery can carry on for years.

Contact Us on 01908 317618 or email info@differentstrokes.co.uk.

We can answer your questions and put you in touch with younger stroke survivors who are willing to share their stories with you.
