The Stroke Association is the second largest stroke support organisation in the world and the UK’s leading charity dedicated to stroke. We deliver stroke services across the UK, campaign for better stroke care, invest in vital research and fundraise to expand our reach to as many stroke survivors as possible.

Stroke is the fourth single largest cause of death and one of the biggest causes of adult disability in the UK. There are over 1.2 million stroke survivors in the UK, with 100,000 strokes happening each year. That’s one stroke every five minutes. Though more people are surviving stroke than a decade ago, far too many stroke survivors say they feel abandoned when they leave hospital, and left to manage recovery and rehabilitation on their own.

The Stroke Association gives life-changing support to over 50,000 stroke survivors and their families each year. We’re currently making strategic investments to enable us to build the foundations for growth and even greater impact.

The Stroke Association is seeking to appoint a Trustee who will transition into chairing the Audit & Risk Committee when the current Chair ends their tenure later this year. They will join a strong Council (Board) of Trustees and Executive Leadership Team in bringing wise governance and strategic guidance as we enter a new period of growth.

Please consider whether this opportunity might exercise your expertise and your commitment to dramatically improving outcomes and quality of life for stroke survivors and their carers.
