Aphasia affects around 350,000 people in the UK
Say Aphasia is an amazing charity offering support to people with aphasia.
Say Aphasia is a small charity that supports those impacted by Aphasia. It provides, help, support, guidance and companionship both to those with Aphasia, and their families in challenging times. It is an incredibly worthwhile cause and I feel privileged to be joining a relay team to cross the British Channel this June, to help raise both money and awareness for this outstanding cause.
To support Say Aphasia with the incredible work they do in raising awareness and providing a lifeline for people affected by Aphasia.
Say Aphasia has been a huge support to my family since my dad suffered a stroke a few years ago. Any donation you’re able to make, however small, will help the organisation continue it’s wonderful work. Thank you
Nearly a year ago I suffered 2 brain haemorrhages . As a result of my injury to the left side of my brain I also found myself dealing with aphasia. The support group in Hove has played a crucial role in my recuperation.
... I have witnessed the impact that not being able to effectively communicate can have on one's life...
Aphasia, a communication difficulty common after stroke or brain injury, affects over 350,000 people in the UK alone, making it difficult to comprehend language or to speak. Fern works in post-stroke aphasia research and has met dozens of wonderful people living with the condition. We want to raise money for an important cause, that helps to connect people to others going through similar life changing experiences and feel less alone by running fun, friendly social groups.
I am running Brighton half marathon in February 2023 to help raise awareness and money for Say Aphasia so they can continue the important work they do!
