Social Impact Report

We use feedback from our annual survey of beneficiaries, case studies and social return on investment calculations to ensure that we are offering services that truly make a difference.

The heart of what we do

To ensure that stroke survivors and their families continue to be at the heart of what we do we produce an annual survey that is open to stroke survivors, family members, friends, carers and health professionals. We want to know if the services that we offer are meeting the needs of our community. The insight that this provides helps us ensure that we continue to deliver services that are relevant and from the heart. 

Accountability Matters

We cultivate a culture of transparency and want to ensure that anyone who invests in our charity, whether through fundraising, volunteering or partnerships can know that their investment is in safe hands. We combine data and social return on investment methodology to calculate how effectively we are using funds and how our services are impacting on the people that they support.

Since that day of the stroke, I’ve gone on to live a very full and healthy life; I’ve been able to walk down the aisle to get married, I’ve given birth (despite being very high risk) to two amazing and healthy kids, I’ve travelled the world, I’ve been a runner and even shuffled through several half marathons and even a couple triathlons.
