About SAFE

SAFE (Stroke Alliance For Europe) is a non-profit-making organisation that represents different stroke support groups across Europe.

Through cam­paign­ing, edu­ca­tion and research, we hope to decrease the num­ber of strokes and make sure those who are affect­ed get the sup­port they need.

SAFE’s aims

Work­ing togeth­er with indi­vid­u­als, patient groups, stroke organ­i­sa­tions and health­care pro­fes­sion­als, we aim to: 

  • Pro­mote aware­ness, under­stand­ing and pre­ven­tion of stroke
  • Iden­ti­fy those at risk of stroke
  • Improve access to infor­ma­tion and treatment
  • Enhance the qual­i­ty of life for sur­vivors and carers
  • Influ­ence deci­sion mak­ers and changes in policy
  • Encour­age and pro­mote research on stroke
  • Coor­di­nate the efforts of nation­al stroke patient groups in Europe
