Description

Speakability Self-Help Groups are run by and for people with Aphasia - language-loss following stroke, head injury or other neurological condition. At our meetings we support each other, share experiences, make new friends, rebuild self-confidence and develop new skills. We do not provide therapy.

We practise total communication using words, drawing, pictures and gesture. We all understand Aphasia and encourage each other in our recovery.

Who is this service for?

We relax and have fun. We raise awareness of Aphasia in our local community and raise funds to support our group meetings, activities and outings.

If you are unable to find a suitable service in your area, contact our Stroke Helpline on 0303 3033 100, or email helpline@stroke.org.uk, and we may be able to put you in touch with alternative support.

You can also search for clubs and groups in your area.
