Local and online stroke support groups

Stroke support groups are a safe and supportive space to try things again, to learn more about stroke and self-care and to build your confidence as you rebuild your life after stroke. Stroke support groups meet in different ways, some are meeting face to face, others are providing support online.

Bath Aphasia Choir

Southdown Methodist Centre
Contact name:
Laura Cook
The Aphasia Choir is an opportunity to meet other people who have been affected by stroke and aphasia, and build confidence. We encourage, empower and support through music and song. Aphasia is a difficulty with communication after a stroke or brain injury. This might be problems with speaking, understanding, reading and/or writing. Because music and singing is processed in a different part of the brain to spoken language, some people with aphasia find that they can sing easily, even though speaking is hard.
