Back to work or Volunteering after a stroke - March events

Back to work or volunteering after a stroke

Many people think strokes happen to older people and that the outcome is poor. In fact, about a third of stroke survivors are of working age and of those many will recover and be well enough to return to the workplace.

The Stroke Association in partnership with Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland are holding two events ‘Back to Work or Volunteering after a stroke’ in March 2015.

The events will look at the challenges and opportunities in getting back to work or volunteering and will also highlight good practice.
