The group understands the difficulties encountered by stroke and looks out for each other and shares information and experiences.
Regardless of how the stroke has affected someone, they will never feel out of place or ill at ease within the group. An emphasis is placed on social activities, making new friends, monthly trips and short break group holidays. Through a combination of these members gain confidence and self esteem.
