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
