About Us

The Style For Stroke Foundation was founded by award winning charity campaigner and TV presenter, Nick Ede. Nicks life changed when his mother passed away from an anurism when he was just 23. Nick was a volunteer for the Stroke Association for nearly 20 years and created the Style For Stroke initiative to promote stroke to a younger demographic. The Style For Stroke campaigns became an instant success, supported by brand and celebrities and helped improve stroke awareness in young people and made supporting brain injury awareness more credible.

As a natural progression Nick decided to launch a stand alone foundation that would provide grants and funds for those who require help after being affected by stroke. 

The foundation continues to to support the Stroke Association but also supports other charities including InterAct Stroke, The Billie Elizabeth Wood Trust, The Shoreditch Trust and Same You ensuring help for those most in need.

The foundation works with fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands to highlight the effects of stroke and raise much needed funds for individuals and stroke charities worldwide.

The Style For Stroke Foundation assists in the treatment and care of persons suffering from mental or physical illness caused by a strokes or in need of rehabilitation as a result of such illness. In particular:

  • To promote and protect the physical and mental health of sufferers of strokes through the provision of financial assistance to sufferers and the organisations which support them.
  • To advance the education of the general public in all areas relating to strokes.
  • Every year the foundation invites charities and individuals concerned with stroke to apply for grants from the money raised. Operating in this way allows the foundation to help charities both large and small – many of the small organisations rely on donations such as these to keep them going. We intend to continue to do this. Any charity concerned with stroke is entitled to apply for a grant. 
  • One third of our annual profit will be donated to the Stroke Association, InterAct Stroke and other charities to assist in medical research on stroke and its prevention.
