Harlow Stroke Support Group was formed in 1996 as a telephone support line, but since then we have grown and we are now offering vital services to stroke survivors and their families thorough sessions held as the Great Parndon Community Association in Abercrombie Way, Harlow, CM18 6YJ.
We offer four groups for members and their families. On Wednesday we run a chair based exercise class from 2pm to 4pm Sessions for people with communications, including speech difficulties takes place between 10am and 12:00 on Thursdays while a social group for all members is held between 10am and 12:30 and 1pm to 3pm on Fridays. Everyone is welcome to attend.
