INCREDIBLE HOSPICE AND NEUROLOGICAL CARE. Sue Ryder provides incredible hospice and neurological care for people facing a frightening, life-changing diagnosis. It’s not just expert medical care we provide. It’s the emotional support and practical things we take care of too. We do whatever we can to be a safety net for our patients and their loved ones at the most difficult time of their lives. Not only do we treat more conditions than any other UK charity in our hospices, neurological care centres and out in the community; we also campaign to improve the lives of people living with them. We see the person, not the condition, taking time to understand the small things that help that person live the fullest life they can.

We research: in a hundred and one different ways, because research will beat blood cancer. We help: through information, support, connections and collaboration. We campaign: to improve patient experience and enhance research. We share learning: to enhance knowledge, understanding and expertise of all those involved in beating blood cancer. And we raise money: so we can meet the needs of blood cancer patients.

Stroke Association
Stroke Association
150,000 people have a stroke every year in the UK. 50,000 will make a full recovery, 50,000 will be left with a severe disability and 50,000 will die. These figures remain shocking. Stroke is one of the greatest health challenges of our time but doesn't get the attention or funding it deserves - especially compared to cancer and heart disease. We are the Stroke Association. We believe in life after stroke. That's why we campaign to improve stroke care and support people to make the best possible recovery. It's why we fund research to develop new treatments and ways to prevent stroke. Stroke Association is a charity. We rely on your support to change lives and prevent stroke.
