About this opportunity

It is estimated there are more than 475,000 Australians living with the effects of stroke. Despite public misperception, stroke is largely preventable, it is highly treatable, and survivors can make a good recovery with the appropriate rehabilitation and community support.

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 and innovative treatments. We support survivors on their journey to live the best possible life after stroke. We are the voice of stroke in Australia and we work to:

Raise awareness of the risk factors, signs of stroke and promote healthy lifestyles.

Improve treatment for stroke to save lives and reduce disability.

Improve life after stroke for survivors.

Encourage and facilitate stroke research.

Advocate for initiatives to prevent, treat and beat stroke.

Raise funds from the community, corporate sector and government to continue our mission.

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