Proposed changes to support for people who have had a stroke

Closed 3 Aug 2018

Opened 21 May 2018

Feedback Updated 16 Jan 2019

We Asked

We consulted over a proposal to end adult social care funding to the Leicester Stroke Club. This was because:

  • there was no evidence that the club helped to prevent or delay people from developing higher levels of need
  • alternative sources of support are available for service users if eligible
  • of the 33 people using the club at the time of the review, only 22 were city residents. This means the city council’s funding was effectively supporting non-city residents.

You Said

We Did

The council has decided to end funding to the club. Service users will be supported to find alternative sources of support should the club have to close. However, the council will support the club to find alternative funding sources.

Results Updated 16 Jan 2019



Adult Social Care (ASC) provides grant funding to the Leicester Stroke Club. The current grant agreement is due to end on 31 December 2018, and ASC has carried out a review of the service to look at options for the future.
The purpose of this consultation is to seek views on proposals for the future of this funding.
