This charity runs primarily off the generous donations given to us by people like yourself. With your money we can continue to run our drop in groups, which offer continuous support for people with aphasia.

Say Aphasia provide extra years of zest to people living with aphasia in the UK. Making someone smile, helping them to keep doing the things they love, no matter how old they are or their reduced ability to communicate, is vital in the fight against loneliness and isolation and to offer the best support with a difference. The charity provide people with aphasia the company and support needed to help adapt to their new way of life. With the added power of music and art, to bring joy to their lives. And through stimulating conversation and interaction to help them with their communication disability.

Every element of our support service is provided completely free of charge. With your donations, the charity is able to continue to provide drop in groups for people with aphasia. And has offered us a much needed element of security for our service.

We are able to provide a place for people with aphasia to meet like minded people who also live with this condition. We make it easier for people to socialise with others who are experiencing a similar life change. The charity aims to improve the welfare of those with aphasia, and to decrease loneliness, frustration, anger, and to help come to terms with their condition.

They can also practise their communication skills: speaking, read and writing, with out any pressure or judgement, and without feeling the need to rush. The groups give people with aphasia more confidence, especially with those who are newly diagnosed with aphasia.  And every one helps each other to adapt to their condition.
