Research has shown that people with long-term conditions, such as stroke, recover better and feel better with the mutual support of others in similar situations.
You gain support, understanding and encouragement, a celebration of your achievements and sympathy in your setbacks. Everyone there knows that recovery from stroke is a long-term process.

There are a number of community transport opportunities available in Bristol and South Gloucestershire which we can advise you on. Contact us for more information
