Description The Stroke Association strives for a world where there are fewer strokes and all those touched by stroke get the help they need. A Stroke Association Communication Skills Development Group Volunteer would spend time with, and support members during meetings. The role entails helping group members undertake activities and social events as directed by the Speech & Language Therapy Assistant, spending time listening to and supporting group members and facilitating the communication skills of people living with aphasia as a consequence of stroke by following advice and using the materials and training provided.
