New Jobs at Connect

Connect is a young and vibrant voluntary organisation working with people who have had a stroke which has affected their speech, writing, and understanding of the written and spoken word. This often hidden disability is described as a communication disability and is known as aphasia. Connect works in partnership with people living with aphasia to promote practical, creative and lasting ways of living with communication disability. We achieve this through an integrated programme of therapy, education and research. We turn doing into influencing - we do what we do to influence others.
