Different Strokes was delighted to be one of 265 charities nationally to receive a grant from the Cabinet Office’s Local Sustainability Fund. This funding is enabling us to improve the way we work, and to forward plan, making us stronger and more resilient.
As part of this work we held 6 regional meetings involving 21 groups. The meetings took place in Sheffield, Birmingham, Glasgow, Southampton, Newmarket and London. We have enjoyed meeting with our groups around the UK to update them on our progress and ask for their thoughts on our future plans. The extremely useful feedback will help us to continue implementing positive change for a more sustainable future.
Thank you also to everyone who took part in our My Milestone campaign for Stroke Awareness month. We are now working on a new website which will be launched later in the year, and we will keep you informed of our progress.
