ISS is proud to support the Stroke Association’s Amazing Brains: Research to Recovery event which celebrated and raised awareness of leading edge research to assist those who’ve experienced the trauma of a stroke
Rob Stanley, COO – Specialised Services of ISS UK represented ISS at the VIP event, which was attended by HRH The Duke of Kent, the Stroke Association’s President. The gathering took place at London’s Science Museum on May 15th, 2019 and delivered insights on the patient experience and the research underway to support patients and their families. 

Fiona Lloyd-Davies gave an inspirational talk about her husband’s recovery from a catastrophic brain haemorrhage and how the right support and rigorous neuro-rehabilitation over four years enabled him to become physically independent again.  

Professor Nick Ward and Professor Jane Burridge provided highlights on how the idea of brain plasticity can bring hope to stroke survivors and how new technologies can become part of routine stroke rehabilitation. Professor Burridge focused on her work on finding ways to promote recovery of movement, whilst Professor Ward examined how valuable lessons can be learned from studying the neuroscience of brain injury.  

Rob Stanley, COO – Specialised Services, ISS UK stated, "We are delighted to support the Stroke Association as our Charity Partner, a fantastic organisation that is making a sustained and improving impact on people’s lives after stroke. The leadership and determination shown by the Stroke Association in terms of supporting research and new technology is critical to improving understanding of how further advancements in treatment and care can continue to have a positive effect on those impacted by Stroke well into the future” He continued, “This strongly reflects our own culture at ISS where we continue to improve our customers workplace experience through our teams and through the implementation of innovative solutions which put people and technology at the forefront.”

Juliet Bouverie, Chief Executive of the Stroke Association, said: “When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. The impact varies depending on which part of the brain is affected. “Cutting-edge research is vital, helping us prevent stroke, save lives, and enable stroke survivors to rebuild their lives. Thanks to the support of ISS, the Stroke Association’s ‘Amazing Brains: Research to Recovery’ event celebrates the incredible strides made by the research community in improving support for stroke survivors, pushing the boundaries of treatment and care. There is so much more to be done, and our research work is only possible with the courage and determination of the stroke community, and the generosity of our amazing supporters.”

About the Stroke Association

When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you.  That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. It happens every five minutes in the UK and changes lives instantly.  Recovery is tough, but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the brain can adapt. Our specialist support, research and campaigning are only possible with the courage and determination of the stroke community and the generosity of our amazing supporters. We’re rebuilding lives after stroke.
