FAST - Stroke Awareness

Dudley Stroke Association was comissioned to promote the FAST stroke awareness programme. We came out to talk to groups, go into schools and attended events to inform people about the effecgs of stroke, recognising the signs. We also promoted the message on sports kits, football, darts, netball..
Sadley funding for this has been withdrawn so from April 1st we will be no longer able to do this
Expert Patient Programme

Our next Self Management Programme/Expert Patient Programme starts on the 17th February. The course runs for 6 weeks and helps people come to terms with living with life after a stroke. contact us for more details.
Had a stroke, or just want to support us. How far can you walk or jog/run? We held a challenge at the Dell stadium on 28th September.  People walked 50 metres, 500 metres, 1500 metres or even  5k.  We plan to do this again so why not have a go and raise some money for us at the same time.
