Clubs and groups

Our stroke clubs and groups offer peer support to stroke survivors, carers, family and friends. As the government advice to stay at home has been extended, we are pausing our Stroke Association voluntary groups until further notice. We have shared this guidance with affiliated independent stroke clubs. Please get in touch with us to find out what support is still available in your local area.
