Raising Awareness raising awareness Raising awareness Stroke can happen to anyone, of any age at any time. It is the third most common cause of death in the UK and the single most common cause of disability. The earlier a person having a stroke receives treatment, the more likely they are to survive and avoid lasting physical and mental damage. Around half of strokes may be avoidable. At Think Ahead, we work to raise awareness of stroke and teach people about the changes that they can make to their lives, to prevent a stroke happening to them or a loved one. We also provide information on the quick action that is necessary if you think someone is having a stroke. All of our stroke awareness downloads are free and we hope you find them useful and informative. We’d love you to show your appreciation by either liking us on Facebook or giving a small donation to support our ongoing work.
