World Stroke Day
29 October 2023
World Stroke Day is observed on October 29 every year to raise awareness of stroke and its prevention, treatment, and care. Stroke is a leading cause of death and disability worldwide, affecting about 15 million people each year. Stroke occurs when the blood supply to a part of the brain is interrupted, causing brain cells to die. Stroke can be prevented by addressing a number of risk factors, such as high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, and obesity. World Stroke Day aims to inform people about the signs and symptoms of stroke and the importance of seeking immediate medical attention. You can take part in World Stroke Day by making a pledge, joining an event, sharing your story, or donating to a campaign. To find out more, visit this website.
Together with our Wellbeing Investment Matching partners and Early Intervention partners, we’ve designed and collated a vast range of wellbeing communication material in line with key national and international health awareness days.
This repository of resources is designed with HR, Line Managers and Employees in mind.
Many of the workshops and training courses in our wellbeing calendar are completely free of charge.
Any employers interested in cost option workshops or training courses provided by our wellbeing partners should talk to us about Wellbeing Investment Matching - an initiative by Generali UK to help companies partly or fully fund a wellbeing initiative where a specific need is identified.
