Stroke Information charity

Hi all,
Via a fellow stroke survivor i was made aware of an independent charity and support network based in Stockport but open to all who are on the SS journey.


A bit like the forum i guess but they meet weekly so can join via zoom like the ZOG on here that @Bobbi hosts.

Thry have a whatsapp group of 50 or so members which is another good way of asking for help or advice dnd feeling part of a like minded supportive caring people.

Just thought i would let you know about it, guy called Nick Clarke runs it and its a very welcoming
And supportive group.




@TRFCANDY53 thank you

I’ll second the recommendation from @TRFCANDY53

The whatsapp moves at 1,000 miles an hour and is mildly football flavored but ‘Clarky’ is very helpful and supportive and there’s plenty of chat. The weeky zoom is a hybrid in person & clashes with one of zogs (Monday). It’s about 2hrs so dropin/leave when tired etc

Definitely worthwhile

hi Chris
if you look at the top of the MyS Guide page youll see “latest” & “categories” & GROUPS - the hamburger menu also incldes it.

in groups is one called ZOG with a requst to join button
when you join the group youll see a “Messages” tab; click it then “ZOG - login info”
The 1st post is this on this link which should NOT work untill you join the group

it gives the actual call details - i don’t think bobbi wants it in the main area

hope that helps
