Health & Wellbeing

Stroke Project

We provide person-centred, long-term support services to those affected by stroke and their families.

We are here to help anyone in Hackney who has had a stroke to improve their physical, social and emotional wellbeing and get back to a fulfilling life. We offer lots of different useful services, get in touch and we will help you find the right ones for you.

Outreach Service

Our outreach team will contact you to discuss your needs. 

  • Providing information and advice relevant to you
  • Applying for welfare benefits, transport, grants, etc.
  • Finding helping activities and services.


If you are not sure where to start, have an urgent worry, or want to know what is available for you and/or your loved ones, book to come and speak with us.

Call ahead to leave your details for the Stroke Project team to get in touch and book a time to meet with you at our community centre - 02035599234.

Support Groups

We recognise that stroke affects people in different ways and therefore we have set up different groups tailored to accommodate people with different needs:

  • High Care: for people with care and support needs.
  • Self-Help Group: to promote independent living and healthy lifestyles.
  • Younger Stroke Survivors Network: for stroke survivors of working age – to build up confidence in participating in community life, developing planning and organising skills and linking to further education, volunteering or return to work.
  • Communications Group: for those with communication difficulties aiming to build up their confidence by practicing communication strategies in the community.
  • Volunteering Opportunities: we have opportunities available - please see our Jobs and Volunteering page
  • Awareness Sessions and information on Blood Pressure Checks: contact us for details.
