  • Mission statement

    Many Stroke survivors, and their carers, suffer from a feeling of isolation and loss of confidence in themselves. Our Aim is to assist them to overcome these feelings by offering INFORMATION, SUPPORT, FRIENDSHIP, and by showing, by example, a positive outlook for the future.

    We operate in Harlow and the Surrounding Areas.

    We offer a home visit, to assess how we can be of help. We also run 2 weekly groups. These are

    1. Dysphasia Group ( Speech and Language Problems)
    2. Social and Communication Group

    Both are held at the GPCA Abercrombie Way, Harlow on Thursday and Friday morning. We also have monthly events and outings.

    We can also be of help, with benefits, home help etc.

    If you have had a stroke or are caring for someone whom has had a stroke, please do not hesitate to call us. Tel - 01279 308313.
