We have run the Act F.A.S.T. campaign a number of times as it is a simple and straight forward message to help people identify the most common signs of a stroke. Acting FAST as soon as you see any single sign of a stroke not only save lives but potentially limit any long-term effects. The faster you act the better their chances. This campaign will be supported by TV, radio and outdoor advertising, as well as social media and PR.
Resources currently available to order from the PHE Campaign Resource Centre (CRC) are as follows and more resources will be added as they become available:
The campaign toolkit containing an overview of the campaign, key messages, long and short copy and details of activity for disabled people and the BAME community can now be download from the CRC, along with the campaigns facts and statistics.
Social media guidance and resources are also now available to download.
As part of the campaign, we are looking for people who have had a stroke and dialed 999, as well as ‘stroke savers’- individuals who have dialled 999 when they have spotted someone displaying stroke symptoms. Do you know anyone who fits these categories? If so, we would love to hear from you. Please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
