Website test results

We ran an online test in April.

Feedback will help build the new Young Stroke website.

62 people did the test.

74% survivors of stroke, 8% family, 2% carers and 16% other. 

Results showed:

  • 92% said they would use the website
  • 92% said if they saw this website they would feel comforted that there were others like them
  • 5 out 6 tasks were successful. Meaning information was easy to find.

Thank you to all participants.

The website will be launched in August.

Research spotlight
