Stroke Action was established on 10 January 2000 as an outcome of the 1999 UK Department of Health funded Mary Seacole Nursing Leadership award stroke prevention research. The research showed that there was very little support for stroke survivors and their carers in the community. A 'pilot' community based stroke support service was set up in the London Borough of Enfield in 2000.
