The founder of this charity had an incident which resulted in him having aphasia. In his case, he had a stroke in 2013 at the age of 50. To him and his family, he seemed to be too young to experience a stroke. That is why we welcome anyone of any age. As we have now learned that strokes can unfortunately occur in someone's 20’s.

The founder was confused and could not fully comprehend what had happened to him. It took him about a year to fully understand what was happening to his brain.

This charity knows first hand the confusion, frustration and change that a stroke can have on a person and their family.

We know that aphasia is not only a result of a stroke, but also head injury, brain haemorrhage, or a brain tumour. That is why we are focused on supporting anyone with aphasia or similar conditions.

We have many people who come regularly to our drop in groups who have aphasia, dysarthria and apraxia.

We are supported by many professionals such as speech therapists, and organisations such as the Stroke Association, however, we are not professionals ourselves, but people who can offer help and support from first hand experience.
