Appointed Events Product Manager (12-month FTC)

Stroke Association

When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do.

It happens every five minutes in the UK and changes lives instantly. Recovery is tough, but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the brain can adapt.

The Stroke Assdociation believe that everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke. And it’s a team effort to get there.

Operating throughout the UK,  the charity provides support services to everyone affected by stroke, including families and carers.
