How our forums helped Rupert

Rupert had a rare type of stroke when he was just 44. He felt isolated and couldn’t get the information he needed. Then he found support on our forum.

Stroke can change your life in an instant. And it can be hard to find people who understand.

In this video you can hear Rupert talk about the people he’s met on the forum, what they’ve meant to him and the support he felt.

"From 18 year olds to 90 year olds. People from all different backgrounds, whether they're students or unemployed or barristers. It's sort of like a community in your pocket..."
