  • Assist group committee members in arranging activities and events for the group by providing information and contacting local activity and/or service providers.
  • Supporting people to take part in activities organised for the group.
  • Supporting Stroke Association Voluntary Group committee members in setting up and clearing away venues where the group meets.
  • Meeting and greeting group members, including supporting new members to be welcomed and supported.
