Welcome to Living with Aphasia

We are a charity that supports people in Devon affected by aphasia. We bring people with aphasia together to share experiences, make friends, rebuild their confidence in communication and access the support they need.

Aphasia is a communication disability, which usually occurs after a stroke or head injury. Its impact can be devastating leaving people unable to speak, understand, read or write.  

Suddenly losing your ability to communicate can be life changing. It can destroy confidence and lead to isolation and depression. 6,000 people across Devon struggle to live with aphasia and we’re here to help.

“When you are at the meeting all of your worries go away because everyone understands. So if there is anyone out there who has had a stroke may I suggest that you come along to one of our meetings, they are good fun” – David
