About Safe

SAFE is a non-profit-making organisation that represents a range of patient groups from across Europe whose mutual goal is to drive stroke prevention up the European political agenda and prevent the incidence of stroke through education.

About Stroke

Stroke is a brain attack - the brain equivalent of a heart attack.


One of SAFE’s goals is to work towards greatly reducing the incidence and impact of stroke across Europe. This means actively educating people about the risks for stroke so that they can make positive life style changes to reduce their chance of suffering a stroke.
