What we do

Aphasia is a communication disorder that makes it hard to use and understand words and language.  It results from damage or injury to the language areas of the brain.  A common cause is stroke.

We have 5 groups in Surrey supporting people with aphasia.

 

Aim of our groups

By bringing people with aphasia together, our groups support our members to rebuild confidence and self-esteem and to adjust to life with aphasia.

Our varied programme of activities enables members to practise strategies to help good conversation.

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

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