what makes our courses relevant and unique?

We work alongside people with aphasia in developing and delivering our courses, sharing their expertise, listening to their experience. We live, work and lunch alongside the people who come to our therapy centre. We know first hand the trials and tribulations of goal setting, user involvement, balancing realism and hope, juggling with different perspectives. We also know the benefits of thinking outside the box and working with service users to come up with solutions which are relevant and creative.

Evidence and research informs our training too. So we combine real life experience with academic back up. Our speakers come from a range of different backgrounds but they are linked by a passion to engage in the big issues in stroke research and service delivery - evaluation, quality of life, access, involvement, capacity building to name but a few.
