Norwich Stroke Survivors’ Club

Norwich Stroke Survivors’ Club was started in 2013 by David Orr who was a member of the original Stroke Association Communications Group. This Group was started many years ago under the auspices of the Stroke Association as a Communications Group. Unfortunately, in 2013, all outside funding was withdrawn from the Group but, as a result of very hard work by David, it became The Norwich Stroke Survivors’ Club and is now a registered charity.

Norwich Different Strokes Support Group

The group is open to survivors and their carers/ loved ones and for those who have been affected by a friend or family member who has suffered a stroke.

We aim to support stroke survivors through their recovery, with the hope that we can help and support them to come to terms with physical and emotional changes as well as significant lifestyle adjustments.

We meet at the coffee bar at the Forum Norwich between 12noon and 1pm for coffee cake, peer support, chat, advice and a bit of fun together.
