Stroke Clubs

Stroke Clubs improve the lives of those affected by stroke every community.

There are varied and innovative activity programmes delivered by dedicated organisers and volunteers, the Stroke Clubs make a huge difference to the quality of life for local stroke people. At the same time, it offers carers respite time knowing their loved ones are in a safe and comfortable environment.

All the Stroke Clubs in the region are affiliated with the Stroke Central Region Inc. They are run by local volunteers. These are people with a heart for the community and often have a personal relation with Stroke.

Members are encouraged to participate in detailing programmes for the clubs and assist in their operation.
There are a number of new groups in our community and we are always lookingfor new ideas. If you would like to be involved or set up a new group, please contact us and we can help.

Ideas for new groups:

  • Coffee Groups – a great way to meet new people in an informal setting (good for all age groups)
  • Young Stroke Groups – we need more of these, all it takes is a handful of people to get it going.
  • Games group – games can vary from Boccia to card games or even the odd quiz
  • Activity Groups – anything from walking to swimming
