The Croydon Stroke Support Group provides peer support for people that have experienced stroke and their carers and meets at a weekly basis at Heathmont Uniting.
Today the group held its end of year function to celebrate the friendships that have formed within the group and the successful events they have organised. The Croydon Stroke Support Group was pivotal in organising the The Good Life After Stroke Expo and Information Day, as well as continuing its emphasis on using art to assist people in expressing themselves and discovering new talents.
Organisations like the Croydon Stroke Support Group help in creating an inclusive community and allow participants to establish new friendships. I thank the group for their support and look forward to meeting them again in 2009.
