About Us

The reason the group was created was to provide support for people who have have had a stroke or people who have another neurological disorder and have already been through the main rehabilitation services.The group organizes activities that aim to restore a members confidence which has usually been shattered by their illness, thereby assisting their social and speech rehabilitation.

It also provides a stimulating environment where members can receive physical and mental exercise, including interaction with others and specifically caters for people with disabilities arising from a stroke

People who suffer from Parkinson’s are also welcome to the sessions

Our group is self funded and this means to be able to keep the group going we do have to make a small charge to cover the costs.

We’re affiliated with the Stroke Association
