Supporting survivors of Stroke, carers and their families

About us

The Stroke Recovery Association NSW aims to maximise the recovery of individuals who have experienced a Stroke and reduce the impact on their family/carers and the community. The Association is a focal point for information about Stroke recovery and prevention.

The Association was established in 1977 and since then has played a major role in the recovery and support of many Stroke survivors, assisted in the development of policy and best practice. It has also assisted in establishing some 42 Stroke recovery Clubs/groups, 4 Stroke Choirs and offers a range of online Stroke support groups to survivors and carers throughout NSW.

Stroke Recovery Clubs

Stroke Recovery Clubs are a meeting place for people to share their knowledge and experiences of Stroke. They provide an opportunity for group activities, speech practice, exercises, and outings. Clubs are an excellent source of companionship for all those affected by Stroke including family and carers.

Member Testimonials

“Tamworth Stroke group is great for social support, the Stroke Recovery Association’s online groups have been very beneficial for Alan with choir, aphasia activity groups, and the working age group, we have learnt so much about aphasia which we did not know . The online Move with Metro Challenge was such a great event. We are now part of a Stroke Recovery Association online family. I have also enjoyed the carers group and guest speakers online.

– Judy (Carer for her husband Alan and member of the Tamworth Stroke Recovery Club)
