Sue and Dr Kirsty have personal experience living with the effects of stroke, which led to them forming this essential group at the beginning of January 2014. SUEvivor is unique as they support the stroke survivor, caregiver, family and friends, providing long term support for FREE. This peer support group was founded and is supported by individuals who have either suffered a stroke themselves, or are a direct family member or friend of a stroke survivor.
Liaising with stroke specialists, health professionals, and local organisations and groups, SUEvivor aims to support those whose lives have been impacted by stroke and share their lifelong journey or “Road to Recovery”. By providing peer support and access to much needed resources, SUEvivor strives to assist survivors form coping strategies, but most of all socialise and meet new friends who truly understand.
Suevivor also help run the hobby hub. PHAB & Suevivor came up with the idea to work in alliance and open a fantastic activity hub ranging from arts and crafts to guitar and drumming lessons, suevivor is a wonderful support group and have worked along side Phab for over two years now. for more information on suevivor please see the link below.
