Visiting speakers. Games and Quizzes. Outings. Most importantly, stroke survivors gain support and inspiration from each other.
The group runs alternate Fridays, the first and third of each month. Please get in touch for details of the next date.
In this issue we celebrate our Life After Stroke Award winners - inspirational people like Charlotte who made an incredible recovery after a stroke at the age of seven. We also take a look at our campaign report, Feeling overwhelmed, which focuses on the emotional impact of stroke and outlines our work to make sure people get the right assessment and support.
The TALK - Support for People with Aphasia following stroke is a Stroke Association affiliated independent group that carries meeting and activities in Guildford, Knaphill, Walton on Thames and Ashford.
Positive Action Bridgend provides high quality information, practical advice and emotional support following a stroke. Whether you are a stroke survivor, carer or family member, we will begin working with you after a stroke. We will continue to provide the support you need, both at home and in the wider community.
This year, June 2018, we have teamed up with other UK aphasia organisations and will be supporting the work of member organisations of the Aphasia Alliance, of which the Stroke Association is one.
