The St Albans & Harpenden Stroke Club meets weekly to provide social and recreational activities for our members. We welcome applications to join from people who have suffered a stroke.
We provide activities to improve communication and encourage conversation in a comfortable and safe venue, with opportunities for social contacts and outings which members may not otherwise have.
The Club is run entirely by CRB checked volunteers, who have had some training in helping stroke survivors with aphasia. We have no statutory funding and as such are funded by local fund raising activities and donations. We are not a registered charity however are affiliated to the Stroke Association.
Come and join us for:

There is something for everyone!
What does it cost?

When & Where
Every Tuesday morning from 10:30am to 12:30pm at Christ Church Annexe, High Oaks, St. Albans - a fully wheelchair accessible venue.

We believe that by working together we can change the world for people affected by stroke. We offer:
Volunteering can be a lot of fun and a great way to meet new people. We're always looking for an extra pair of hands, If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please feel free to contact us.
A warm welcome
