Groups & Activities

Stroke Central Region wants all stroke survivors, carers and whanau to have the relevant support and social networks. Please look through our groups and see if there is a group for you. (membership $15)

If the answer is yes, we can put you in touch with the local group leader, our Field Officer can introduce you to a group.
If you want to join a group, but the current groups do not appeal to you let us know. We are always looking for new ideas and there maybe like-minded people who can form a new group.

Ideas for new stroke groups:

  • 4 Stroke Engine Club (Manawatu 4 Stroke is pictured above)
  • Coffee Groups
  • Activity Groups (Walking, Dancing, Singing, Writing, Films, Knitting or do something different each week?)
  • See below for our existing Stroke Clubs and Groups.
