SSOFT takes everything we know about running and growing a Stroke Support Organisation (SSO) and breaks it down into bitesize learning modules for you to work through – at your own pace – online. It’s designed to help anyone who is, or wants to be, a stroke advocate to develop their skills, knowledge and resources.
SSOFT is brought to you by SAFE (Stroke Alliance For Europe), a non-profit-making organisation that represents a range of stroke patient support groups from all over Europe. SAFE’s main objective is to raise awareness of stroke among policymakers at an international level.
