Merseyside Life After Stroke Group is a volunteer-led, self-funded group providing art therapy, creative support and peer support. There is an art tutor available if you want to take part in art therapy, or simply come along, meet and socialise with other stroke survivors and carers.
Stroke survivors, carers, family members and friends are experts in what it's like to experience and live with stroke. People affected by stroke are involved in many areas of our work, from helping to decide what research we fund, to collaborating with the researchers we fund on their studies. Find out how you can get involved to help shape stroke research in the future.
We are a dedicated group of volunteers who have provided support for stroke survivors in the Thornbury district since 1981. We are affiliated to the Stroke Association which is a national organisation and we are also a registered charity in our own right.
