£5K for Harlow Stroke Support Group

September 2018

Harlow Stroke Support Group (HSSG) has been a registered charity covering Harlow and the surrounding areas since 2003 with the mission to improve the lives of stroke survivors, their carers and families.  The charity's aim is to enable those affected by a stroke to lead a life that is as full and active as possible and they can be there at every stage of recovery to assist.  They run advice and support meetings, offer 1:1 home visits and hold groups where their clients can take part in chair based exercise classes, work on speech and language and enjoy social and rehabilitation opportunities in a fun, friendly and relaxed atmosphere, doing arts and crafts, playing games or simply chatting.  The groups are supervised by a Stroke Support Worker with help from volunteers.  ACT were delighted to be able to pledge a donation of £5K to help them to carry on their great work.
