About this service

South Tees Communication Support Service works with stroke survivors who are living with communication difficulties. Our service can bring you opportunities to develop communication strategies, help rebuild confidence and independence, and get you back to life after stroke.

The service offers:

  • A communication support needs assessment.
  • Support in a group setting, or on a one-to-one basis at home, from our service coordinator and trained volunteers.
  • The opportunity to practise communication, and gain confidence in dealing with everyday situations.
  • Information, advice and emotional support.
  • Signposting to other organisations that could help.

Who is the service for?
