We at the Stroke Association support people in rebuilding their life after stroke providing a wide range of services throughout Calderdale. We provide specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support they need.

Our dedicated team provide information, advice and guidance on stroke recovery going through key aspects including rehabilitation, physical and mental well-being, communication development, community/NHS input and other support services. We also focus on secondary prevention encouraging lifestyle improvements, addressing risk factors and ensuring everyone has the right information pertaining to their needs.

We also have a wonderful team of volunteers who successfully run the Calderdale Stroke Support Group providing fantastic peer support at their monthly meetings including having a variety of guest speakers, topical discussions, fun activities and health and well-being development. The group attracts many stroke patients and families and has a warm, friendly and welcoming environment for all, held Every 2nd Monday of the month, 2pm-4pm at the Maurice Jagger Centre in Halifax.

Today, in partnership with FC Halifax Town, we are delighted to have the opportunity to meet you where you can have a chat about stroke and our services. Youโ€™ll see the players warming up in our t-shirts kindly supporting our cause and we will be around the stadium in our distinctive purple clothing with our collection tins, please kindly donate whatever you can.
