At 39 years of age Kate suffered a very severe brainstem stroke and was diagnosed with “locked-in syndrome”, leaving her completely paralysed and unable to communicate. Against all odds and to doctors’ amazement, she managed to regain speech and mobility in less than a year….
I have heard Kate speak – an experience that will long in the memory…

Working alongside Kate Allatt is an absolute privilege. Kate is a fantastic and generous story teller and she has one of the most inspiring personal stories I have ever heard! When Kate stands up and calmly shares her experience of recovery from locked in syndrome, you can hear a pin drop, everyone in the room is deeply touched by her courage and determination. What I really admire about Kate is that she is purposeful, aspirational and has a fantastic sense of humour all wrapped up in one incredible woman. She is on a mission to make a positive difference to people who are recovering from stroke and I am sure, as was the case with her recovery story, she will achieve more than anyone ever dared hope!Roz Davies
