Some good news! We’re getting a shiny new aphasia friendly website!
Thanks to a National Lottery Community Fund we’ll be able to reach more people living with aphasia online.
Watch this space for more updates.
Other good news is our Online Creative Art sessions are proving to be very popular. Magic Carpet, an Arts for Wellbeing Charity is providing fabulous sessions for us to get creative and express ourselves without words.
The more people who know what aphasia is, the easier the lives will be for those who live with it.
Aphasia awareness month is a great way to spend some time focusing on spreading the word ‘aphasia‘ around as much as possible.
In the UK:
About 350,000 people in the UK have aphasia – help our affiliate charity Say Aphasia educate 350,000 other people about aphasia. So that people who live with aphasia do not feel so alone, isolated and misunderstood.
We are missing seeing everyone but we keep smiling! Watch our film about us Living with Aphasia and all that we stand for. It has been so great to be able to support people through the isolation of the present situation.
Our weekly zoom meetings are keeping some of us connected and inspired with regular creative projects to share. Let us know if you’d like to join in.
We have been keeping our friendships going through zoom, telephone and post during this Covid 19 crisis. Our Creative Art group has been offering our support for the marvellous NHS and Carers too. Follow Magic Carpet art ideas too.
Keeping active is important so follow with Em’s exercises video too.
We hope you are all staying well and safe during this time.
