Every year during June, organisations of the Aphasia Alliance work together to raise awareness of aphasia, which affects more than 350,000 people in the UK.  Around a third of people who have a stroke will experience aphasia, and greater awareness can mean easier communication and a better quality of life for a person with aphasia.

This year we’re working alongside the other members of Aphasia Alliance to generate support for National Aphasia Awareness Month. 

An awareness postcard featuring key facts about aphasia and top tips for better conversations will be distributed by members, supporters and networks of the Aphasia Alliance.

In addition, we hope supporters will use social media to promote the need for better understanding of this communication disability, using the hashtag #Aphasia.
