Volunteer OHS Policy Reviewer


Stroke is one of Australia’s biggest killers and a leading cause of disability amongst adults. There are approximately 50,000 new and recurrent strokes each year in Australia with one occurring every 10 minutes. Stroke affects people of all ages but predominantly occurs in the elderly. There are almost 440,000 people living after stroke in Australia. Despite public misperception, there are proven treatments for stroke prevention and recovery.  

The Stroke Foundation is a national charity that partners with the community to prevent, treat and beat stroke. We stand alongside stroke survivors and their families, healthcare professionals and researchers. We build community awareness and foster new thinking. We support survivors on their journey to live the best possible life after stroke.

Our Values of Courage, Excellence, Compassion, Integrity and Leadership are an integral part of our culture, brand and positioning, and inform our decisions and behaviours in our dealings internally within the organisation, and externally with our stakeholders.
