Our voluntary groups play an important role in ensuring that stroke survivors do not become socially isolated. They also help to build the confidence and self-esteem of the people who attend. Our Stroke Group Supporters assist in the running of one, or sometimes more, of these local voluntary groups
After a stroke, many people will not be able to drive and may find it challenging to access local activities, services and events. As a result, many people lose their independence and can become socially isolated.
About 30% of stroke survivors will experience communication difficulties after their stroke, which can make daily living extremely challenging. Our Communication Service Supporters support stroke survivors whose communication has been affected by their stroke to develop new strategies to aid their communication.
