About this service

Our service provides high quality information, practical advice and emotional support in the aftermath of a stroke. We begin working with a stroke survivor and their family immediately following a stroke, and will continue to provide the support people need, for as long as they need it – within their own homes and back into the community.

What the service offers

  • life after stroke support
  • home visits
  • leaflets and factsheets and information about Life after Stroke grants and benefits
  • help with returning to work
  • assistance with accessing local leisure and social activities
  • support for carers and links to other organisations and networks
  • support in group setting or on a one-to-one basis with opportunities to practice communication and gain confidence.
