Irish Heart Foundation Stroke Awards 2015 Nominate your Stroke Hero Today! 

Closing date Friday September 11th 2015

Has a member of your community shown exceptional courage after surviving a stroke? Or do you know someone who has gone above and beyond the call of duty in caring for someone affected by stroke?

The Stroke Awards celebrate the incredible courage and determination of those affected by stroke. They are also an opportunity to recognise the unfailing commitment of the families and carers who work tirelessly to help stroke survivors rebuild their lives.

10,000 Irish people suffer a stroke annually and it is estimated that up to 30,000 are living with a disability caused by stroke. The awards will be a wonderful occasion to celebrate this heroic group and prove that there is life after stroke.   

Winners will be chosen from each of the following categories:
  

  •  Young People’s Bravery Award
  •  Adult Bravery Award
  •  Carer’s Award
  •  Stroke Champion Award
  •  Act FAST Award

The adjudication panel will be comprised of members of the Council on Stroke- the advisory body to the Irish Heart Foundation on all matters relating to stroke.

Nomination forms are available here or by contacting the address below.
