Stroke Support Groups

The Irish Heart Foundation is helping to develop Stroke Support Groups all over Ireland.

Stroke Support Groups are local groups that provide a place for people affected by stroke to come together on a regular basis and to share their experiences. Stroke support groups are a fantastic way to meet others and to gather information.


Discuss problems and overcome them

People in the group can discuss problems they may have had and how they overcame them, giving other people a chance to use the same techniques to overcome their problem


Support, information and more

The groups provide information, raise awareness and offer support and advice on stroke. Some groups also offer activity programmes, such as guest speakers and recreational trips and services such as physiotherapy and counselling.

If you are interested in joining a Stroke Support Group please contact the Irish Heart by emailing us or speak to our National Heart & Stroke Helpline Nurses –  Freephone 1800 25 25 50.

Our Stroke Support Groups are growing all the time
