Islington Communication Support Service works with stroke survivors who are living with communication difficulties. Social support is offered by others in similar situations to help rebuild confidence and develop new ways of communicating. 

This service offers:

  • a communication support needs assessment
  • support in a group setting, or on a one-to-one basis at home, from our service coordinator and trained volunteers
  • the opportunity to practise communication, and gain confidence in dealing with everyday situations
  • information, advice and emotional support
  • signposting to other organisations that could help.
