My Stroke Guide is a self-management tool to support people who have been affected by stroke. It was designed by the UK Stroke Association, working closely with stroke survivors and family members. My Stroke Guide includes:

  • Information about the effects of stroke and hints and tips about how to deal with them.
  • Peer-to-peer support, including an extensive video library and an online forum.
  • Advice and signposting on the various issues people can face after stroke.

You need to create a log in to access My Stroke Guide. It is made for people in England and the UK but lots of the information is relevant to everyone affected by stroke.


“Stroke Support New Zealand” is an active Facebook group. This group is dedicated to stroke survivors, victims, caregivers and family members affected by stroke. This is a forum for all to discuss and share stories about your journey as a stroke survivor and let others know about information you have found helpful. The group is dedicated mainly to New Zealand residents however others are free to join.
