    What success will look like

    Success will be... Seeing members blossom and regain confidence and self esteem,

  • Impact


    Stroke can take away the life you are use to, stop you working, walking, speaking, or even remembering what you did yesterday.
    This all takes away your quality of life.
    We show ways to regain your self worth.
    We track progress, with surveys, lists of achievements for each member, but just seeing the difference in our members is our biggest success.


    Finance would risk this project.. But we have been fortunate to recieve a grant from the Big Lottery, and continue to fundraise.


    Yearly Monitoring reports and the progress of the group, and the financial status of the group is sent yearly, to our donors.
