Phil says:

"I had a stroke in July 2014 when I was 28. That was when I discovered I had an underlying heart condition. After a three-month stay in hospital I rang Bristol After Stroke asking for support.

I received counselling and, as I wasn’t working then, I joined the South Bristol Stroke Support Group in Bedminster in January 2015. This group has helped me deal with the loneliness and depression.

Through the group’s support and lovely volunteers, I began to regain my independence. Although I still get tired quickly, I have been able to return to my job in a school part-time.”

Phil now volunteers at Bristol After Stroke's South Bristol Stroke Support Group, aiming to help those who have helped him so much. A keen theatre lover and writer, he has produced two community plays with the proceeds going to Bristol After Stroke. Thank you so much!
