About a third of stroke survivors will experience communication difficulties after their stroke, which can make daily living extremely challenging. Our Communication Service Supporters support stroke survivors to develop new strategies to aid their communication. In doing so, they help people to build their confidence, achieve personal goals and promote independence.

As a Communication Service Supporter, you can provide focused support to facilitate the communication of stroke survivors in groups, or on a one-to-one basis in their homes, and enable them to access activities and services in their local community

Where a service is able to provide more long-term support, you may have the opportunity to support stroke survivors in a group setting that offers more social/informal activities. You'll also help to develop and deliver new communication activities or ways of supporting stroke survivors.
