Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Triangle – Stroke Project. The Project is always looking for enthusiastic volunteers to keep up its great work and we are always pleased to hear from people who have time, energy and commitment.
TRIANGLE – The Stroke Project
The Stroke Project is part of Triangle since 2001 and provides community based support and prevention services to people affected or at high risk of stroke. We also run our Public Health Project which aims at supporting men, minority communities and targeted groups of City workers to reduce their risk of stroke, heart disease, diabetes and kidney disease through our NHS Health Checks and Health MOTs (blood pressure checks and BMI).
Volunteers are a valuable resource in the Project as they enhance the work of staff and the quality of the service we offer to our stroke survivors, carers and people in the community.
