Stroke clubs and groups provide essential long-term peer support to stroke survivors, carers, family and friends. They provide an opportunity for those who have been affected by stroke to rediscover previous skills, learn new skills, regain confidence, increase independence and socialise with other individuals who have had similar experiences. 

They provide a friendly environment where people affected by stroke can receive the information, support and help they need.

"My stroke group has made a huge difference to me. Initially they helped me with my speech, then they helped me gain my confidence back."
Alan Batup, Stroke survivor
