More than 350,000 people in the UK have aphasia, a communication disability which can affect their ability to understand, speak, read, write and use numbers.
Aphasia is a long-term condition and many people will continue to need support for several years after its onset. However, with the right tools and support, even someone with severe aphasia can continue to communicate effectively.
Find out how to access a UK-wide consultation group for stroke survivors with aphasia, a communication disorder which is common after stroke.
Anyone can be put forward as a trustee and people may nominate themselves, or someone else they think may be suitable (with their consent). Find out the requirements of the post and how to apply.
Around a third of stroke survivors suffer from aphasia, a language disorder which can affect speech, comprehension and reading and writing skills. The Stroke Association has the skills and experience to help people with these communication disabilities.
This research will develop a new self-management programme for stroke survivors with aphasia and their families, to help them to adjust to and manage their lives after stroke.
Your donation will help rebuild the lives of stroke survivors.
