Young Adults Rehabilitation experiences and Needs following Stroke (YARNS) Advisory Group

YARNS is a study to scope the range of rehabilitation experiences and needs of young adults (18 – 40) following stroke through their own stories, the published literature and the formal and informal services available to support them. The study commenced in January 2020 and has representation of clinical and academic partners from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern-Ireland.

We are currently recruiting volunteers for YARS Advisory Group. The role of the Group is to advise on the development of the YARNS project and to act as a ‘critical friend’ by providing representation and feedback on all aspects of the study.
