Objectives

Say Aphasia provides support for people with aphasia. 

Aphasia is a communication condition caused by damage to a specific area of the brain that controls language expression and comprehension. Aphasia can be caused by stroke, a brain tumour, a severe head injury or a progressive neurological condition like dementia. Aphasia leaves a person unable to communicate effectively including difficulties with speech, reading or writing. It does not affect intellect, people with aphasia know what they want to say, they just may not be able to say it. About 350,000 people in the UK are living with Aphasia.

People with aphasia often feel isolated and lonely due to their communication challenges. It doesn't need to be this way. Through our groups, people can regain their independence and continue to live full lives.
