Strive to Thrive at work after stroke

Who it’s for: Survivors of stroke

What it involves: Interviews

Where: Online (Australia)


Researchers at Deakin University are trialling a new work support program and are looking for people who are working (paid or unpaid) after stroke.

Strive to Thrive was created by people with a lived experience of stroke, clinicians and researchers. This program is designed to help people who have had a stroke identify what helps and hinders them at their work, and create a personalised action plan to manage the impact of the stroke on their day-to-day work life.

The team want to see if Strive to Thrive is acceptable to a broader group of people who have had a stroke, and make further adjustments and improvements based on their feedback.


The team are looking for people who

  • Have experienced a stroke at least one month ago
  • Are currently participating in paid or unpaid work outside the home (employment, volunteer work, committee work etc.)
  • Can communicate in English and participate in Zoom sessions.


Participants will be asked to give 5 hours of their time over approximately one month. This includes 2 x 1-hour assessments, and 3 x 1-hour Strive to Thrive sessions. All sessions will be via Zoom.
