We all need to stay at home to protect ourselves and others. However, those who are well and not at risk can provide essential support for their family, friends and neighbours who cannot leave the house.

Stroke Association

The Stroke Association is the UK's largest stroke charity. We raise awareness of strokes, support people who have had a stroke and fund vital stroke research.

Current opportunities

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of people affected by stroke? Making sure that as many people as possible know about stroke and the Stroke Association is a challenge and one that we can’t achieve on our own. As a Stroke Ambassador you will use your skills, experience and passion to represent the Stroke Association in your local community. You will proactively reach out and engage people in our charities work by communicating our key messages and organisational policy positions, increasing support for the organisation, sharing prevention messages and campaigning for care and support for stroke survivors. In this flexible role there are three pathways for Stroke Ambassadors; Awareness, Prevention and Campaigning. You can focus on one area, or across all three.

Do you want to make a difference to the lives of people affected by stroke? Volunteer with our My Stroke Guide Drop In Project in Renfrewshire. My Stroke Guide Buddies – Hand in Hand will introduce My Stroke Guide to people affected by stroke through regular drop-in sessions in public places (libraries, etc.), run with a Volunteer Stroke Ambassador. Their goal is to help stroke survivors, families or friends understand how they might benefit from accessing My Stroke Guide online and how they can go about connecting to and using the Guide on a regular basis.
