Local stroke support groups and choirs

There are stroke support groups across Australia, powered by stroke survivors and carers who want to see the benefits of peer support made available to as many people as possible.

Some groups cater for everyone in a local area, while others cater for particular age groups and interests. There are groups for people with aphasia, and groups for carers.
Not every group is listed on our website, so if there is a stroke association in your state, it’s a good idea to check with them also. 

Looking for an aphasia group? Check out the Aphasia Association website or the Aphasia Community

Call StrokeLine for more information on 1800 787 653 or email strokeline@strokefoundation.com.au
