Food after stroke project

We are working to produce a series of videos that focus on cooking after stroke. As a team, we have thoughts on several topics for this theme, but we’d like to hear from you about what content you would like to see on this subject.

What is the 'Food after stroke' project?

Food is life. It connects us with our cultural heritage, our friends and loved ones, its a language we can all speak. Though our relationship with food may change after a stroke, particularly those with swallowing difficulties, fatigue, or strict dietary changes; being able to enjoy your food is important for a good quality of life.

It's why we want to talk to people from all walks of life, who can tell us about their experiences of getting back in the kitchen after a stroke. We want to understand what content stroke survivors, caregivers, and supporting family members would like to see in these videos including ideas on cuisine, diet, kitchen adaptations and more.

Get involved!

We would love to hear from you and hope you can join us for a focus group on Friday 22nd July at 2pm-3pm on Zoom. This focus group has limited spaces, but there will be other opportunities to feed into this project at later dates.


  • You must have access to a laptop/phone/tablet for Zoom (practice and support can be offered).
  • Must be a stroke survivor, carer or family member.

We would be very keen to speak to people who have:

  • An interest in cooking, or
  • Changed their diet post-stroke, or
  • Found cooking difficult post-stroke

We look forward to hearing from you!
