Different Strokes holds a conference every year. It is usually held in October and attracts around 150 delegates.
Delegates are younger stroke survivors who are determined to make an optimum recovery from their stroke and are interested in any products or services that help them achieve this. Some stroke survivors bring a family member or friend with them, and there are also a few staff from other voluntary organisations and healthcare professionals.
Each year the conference takes place in a different location so that stroke survivors throughout the UK who are unable to travel far for any reason get an opportunity to attend once in a while.
