About the organisation

Aphasia Re-Connect

Aphasia-Reconnect provides long-term peer support groups to people with an acquired communication disability, aphasia, often at a time when statutory support is limited. Peer support (where people with communication disability work together to support each other) is underpinned by an infrastructure of training, partnership, support and supervision. Volunteers are the life-blood of the charity and they are an intrinsic part of the partnership with people with aphasia.
