Leisure participation after stroke

Institute for Applied Health and Wellbeing (LIFE)

In the UK, over 1.2 million people are living with the consequences of a stroke. Around two-thirds of people who have experienced a stroke report being unable to fully return to the leisure activities that they enjoyed before their stroke.


This programme of research aims to:

  • understand the barriers and enablers of participating in leisure activities following stroke
  • develop a complex intervention to enable stroke survivors to participate in valued leisure activities
