Thanks to our partnership with the Royal Mail, the Stroke Association can provide one-off ‘Life After Stroke’ grants of up to £300 to support stroke survivors with their recovery.
Examples of items provided by recovery grants include:
- a specialised respite/family holiday inside the UK
- white goods such as washing machines, tumble dryers, or fridges
- beds and bedding
- riser-recliner chairs
- medical equipment/disability aids not available from NHS
- travel costs for compassionate reasons, for example hospital visiting, or travel to visit family.
If you are working with stroke survivors who you think could benefit from a Life after Stroke grant, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0303 30 33 100 for more information on the application process.
Please note that a doctor’s certificate confirming diagnosis of stroke will be needed, and that the grants are means-tested to ensure that they are targeted at those in most need.
