What we do

Aphasia is a communication disability that is caused by damage to the language processing centres of the brain, most commonly through stroke.

We have 5 groups in Surrey supporting recoverers of stroke with aphasia.


Aim of our groups

To help our recoverers rebuild confidence, self-esteem, familiarise them with strategies to aid conversation and adjust to life following a stroke through exercises, role plays, group work etc.

TALK Surrey is in close working contact with several Surrey based hospitals.

95% of our members are referred via speech and language therapists.
