Aphasia Guides

For many stroke survivors, especially those with communication difficulties like aphasia, getting online can be difficult.

We have developed a guide called Getting online for people with aphasia’. 

The guide supports people to practice using technology from setting up an email account, downloading an app or using Google Maps.  

This guide is for people with aphasia but can also help family and friends

There are 14 sections in the guide and each one has a useful video.

You can order a hard copy, download the guide or watch the videos on YouTube.

Here For You

Many stroke survivors have told us they feel alone and disconnected. If you’ve had a stroke or care for someone who has and need someone to talk to, we’re Here For You.

Our telephone support service is free and matches you to trained volunteers. They’ll offer peer support following a stroke to help you combat feelings of isolation and stay connected with others.

Talking things through on the phone can build confidence and help you feel more able to cope and stay connected with others.

Sign-up to the service by filling out our online form.
