We were recently contacted by Amelia Kehoe, who works for the Community Integration Service at the Stroke Association (based on team valley). Amelia works with individuals who have either had a stroke, acquired brain injury or suffer from other neurological conditions. As part of their service, they run activities and groups to help integrate individuals back into the community. Often these individuals have low mood and low confidence and so these groups really help.
Recently there has been a keen interest in art and so Amelia is in the process of trying to start an art group. If any artists or groups would be interested in offering any help or advice / ideas for what sort of sessions could be run, any help would be greatly appreciated.
