Painswick Stroke Association meet in the Auditorium at Richmond Painswick
Many people who’ve been affected by stroke find help and support from others who have had similar experiences. Local stroke support clubs and groups offer invaluable peer and social support. Through regular meetings and a programme of activities, they invite people to come together, share experiences, regain confidence, relearn skills, and try out new things.
Stroke support clubs and groups are usually run by volunteers. They meet in a variety of places but aim to provide parking facilities, be wheelchair accessible and have space for activities. Refreshments are always available. They rely on donations and fundraising to fund their activities.
There are over 500 clubs and groups supporting people affected by stroke across the UK. Most are independent stroke charities with many choosing to affiliate to the Stroke Association. Lots are Stroke Association Voluntary Groups run by our volunteers as part of the Stroke Association’s Life After Stroke model.
Penultimate Tuesday of each month 2:00pm to 4:00pm at Richmond Painswick Auditorium
