Stroke Alliance for Europe
The Stroke Alliance for Europe (SAFE) is the leading European-wide network of over 30 stroke support organisations.
SAFE was set up as a European Patient Group in 2004 as a result of a European Parliament initiative calling on EU member states to tackle stroke as a preventable disease and is the voice of all those affected by stroke in Europe.
It is a non-profit membership organisation, working to reduce the incidence and impact of stroke in Europe through advocacy, campaiging, education, research and awareness raising.
SAFE’s vision is a better future – a Europe where preventable stroke is eliminated, death and disability minimised, and every person affected by stroke lives their best life possible.
Main tasks attributed in the project:
SAFE contribute to WP8 (Dissemination) in which they had primarily have responsibility for multi-channel communication of the project, via outreach to patient representative bodies and the relevant wider public in the stroke community.
