This service is for stroke survivors of any age, carers and family members. If you or someone you care about has had a stroke, our service can provide practical advice, essential information and emotional support. We will work with you to make sure your needs are met as you make the best possible recovery. The service offers:

  • Hospital and home visits
  • Friendship networks
  • The opportunity to practice communication and gain confidence
  • Access to support groups
  • Help with returning to work
  • Assistance with accessing local leisure and social activities
  • Support for carers
  • Information leaflets
  • Referrals to other organisations that can also help

The service works as follows:

  • Either you, your carer or your GP can contact us for a referral
  • We’ll arrange to visit you at home
  • We offer information, advice and support to you, your family or carer
  • You can choose to join a local group for additional activities and support

We have a stroke support group that meets every Thursday from 1.00pm to 4.00pm. You can stay for the whole session or drop in at any time while the session is running. You will be able to meet others who have been affected by stroke. You’ll be able to share your experiences and receive support from others who know how stroke changes lives.

The group is held at: The David Rayner Centre, Scotsdales Garden Centre, 120 Cambridge Road, Great Shelford, Cambridge CB22 5JT.
