InterAct Stroke Support

InterAct Stroke Support

InterAct Stroke Support is a charity dedicated to supporting stroke recovery by using professional actors to deliver a stimulating and rich variety of reading material specially selected to suit the needs of stroke patients.

InterAct’s 160 professionally-trained actors read in 18 hospitals and over 50 stroke clubs across the country as well as leading a variety of community projects.

Following a stroke (also referred to as a ‘brain attack’) reading and conversational interaction stimulates the brain, boosts memory and communication skills, improves mood and alleviates depression.

Post-stroke rehabilitation can be a long process and InterAct supports stroke survivors every step of the way, from hospital recuperation to community reintegration.

For stroke survivors in Southwark and nationwide.
InterAct run a weekly stroke club in Southwark with a professional actor. The club runs Wednesdays 10.30am – 12.30pm at Christchurch Community Hall, Blackfriars Road, SE1 8NY. Ask for Chris.
