We work with the Stroke Association to support children who have experienced a stroke, and their families.
Together with children and families, we've created animations about what it means to have a stroke and the steps to getting better.
The films will guide a child through what happens when they have a stroke, who will help them recover and the feelings they might have while they recover.
These videos are hosted on the Stroke Association YouTube channel.
