The Life After Stroke Centre is here to provide a place for people affected by stroke. We offer person-centred and long-term peer-to-peer support through a wide range of learning and activity programmes that have been specially designed to help rebuild lives after stroke. 

Our programmes cover practical, emotional and physical needs. Activities range from supportive and informative sessions, exercise-based sessions, to dexterity focused craft sessions and more.

What we offer

The centre offers a calm, nurturing environment that promotes independence and enablement, assisting those affected by stroke on their recovery journey for as long as they want support.

You’ll find:

  • 1-2-1 spaces for private conversations.
  • Social spaces for your friends or group to meet.
  •  Activity programmes led by volunteers or external professionals.
  • Community garden.

We also have a resource centre with leaflets, factsheets, books and other resources for the stroke community.

Our aim is to allow those with various long-term effects of stroke to recognise their capabilities, find new ways of doing things and increase confidence. The centre is all about community, and we encourage everyone to try new things, meet new people and most importantly, have fun. 

The sessions are held in a safe environment and take place at the centre or in the wider community. We also offer a programme of online activities using Zoom.

All our programmes have been designed to enable the best possible recovery following stroke. Some sessions incur a small fee.
