Emotional or social support
We want to be there for people affected by stroke who are feeling isolated and alone in their stroke recovery. Many people will be feeling this way during the current pandemic. If you, or someone you support, has had a stroke, and you would just like to talk to someone who understands, we can connect you with one of our lived experience volunteers. They can regularly call you on the telephone to offer a listening ear and share thoughts and experiences. Or if you are feeling lonely or isolated and you’d like someone to talk to in the coming weeks, we can pair you with one of our supportive volunteers who’d be happy to chat.
For more information and to either sign up yourself or a loved one, please contact the Stroke Helpline on 0303 3033 100 and mention 'Here for You' or visit https://www.stroke.org.uk/finding-support/here-for-you
