About SAFE

The Stroke Alliance for Europe (SAFE) an international non-profit-making organisation formed in 2004 in Brussels, Belgium. It is the voice of stroke patients in Europe, representing a range of patient groups from more than 30 European countries.

SAFE’s goal is to decrease the num­ber of strokes in Europe by advo­cat­ing for bet­ter pre­ven­tion, access to ade­quate treat­ment, post-stroke care and rehabilitation.

SAFE’s priorities

To achieve our vision and aims, SAFE engages in activ­i­ties such as cam­paign­ing, edu­ca­tion and encour­ag­ing research, which con­tribute to the advance­ment of stroke pre­ven­tion and the improve­ment of the qual­i­ty of life of stroke sur­vivors, their fam­i­lies and car­ers. We do this both at a Euro­pean lev­el, and by sup­port­ing mem­bers to do so locally.

Our cur­rent pri­or­i­ties are:

  • Sup­port stroke patients to receive bet­ter access to spe­cial­ist care and rehabilitation.
  • Encour­age and grow stroke patient groups.
  • Cam­paign at the at EU level.
  • Dis­sem­i­nate the results of EU research projects
  • Raise aware­ness of sec­ondary pre­ven­tion of strokes
  • Gov­er­nance and resources’
