About this service

Western HSCT Communication Support Service in Northern Ireland works with stroke survivors who are living with communication difficulties. Our Communication Plus Programmes are professionally led by qualified Speech and Language Therapists and take place within a group environment. The programme can bring you opportunities to develop new communication strategies, help rebuild confidence and independence, and get you back to life after stroke.

This service offers:

  • support to build new communication strategies tailored to your needs
  • the opportunity to practise communication, and gain confidence in dealing with everyday situations
  • support from others in a similar situation to you
  • information, advice and emotional support
  • help and guidance on aphasia and other communication disabilities following a stroke, for carers, families and friends.

Who is the service for?

This service is for those who are affected by communication difficulties following a stroke. This includes stroke survivors (including TIAs/mini-strokes) of any age, and people with disabilities caused by stroke, living in the western regions of Northern Ireland.

If you are unable to find a suitable service or group in your area, contact our Stroke Helpline on 0303 3033 100, or email info@stroke.org.uk, and we may be able to put you in touch with alternative support.
