Background.

The group began in 1999, set up by a few carers and stroke survivors at West Park Rehabilitation hospital in Wolverhampton.
At first there were only half a dozen in the group, but their aims were clear, to give young at heart stroke survivors a regular venue for exercise tailored to
their disabilities and the opportunity to get to know others who like themselves had suffered a stroke.
Since those early days our 'family' has grown steadily and these days we often have over fifty stroke survivors, carers and family attending on a Saturday morning. Our age range has also expanded and ranges from twenties to eighties. We have a number of activities each year, a fun sports day at RAF Cosford, using our specially adapted bikes in West Park, bowling, eating out and even gliding!
We also have a Facebook group where we can discus issues affecting stroke survivors and carers and post the late

Our Aims.


One of the many problems that stroke survivors experience is a lack of self esteem and feeling isolated, these emotions are often shared by their carers. Using our exercise sessions and general association, we work together to build up confidence and reduce isolation by forming supporting relationships with
each other.

What our main Ethos and belief is:

Our aim is to put purpose back into the lives of stroke survivors and their families affected by stroke, we do this by taking the 'dis' out of disability and focus on ability. Using exercise and activity to effect a positive psychological and physical change in stroke survivors. Thereby inspiring the thought, 'if I can do this what else can I achieve?'
