About the Stroke Association of Victoria

The Stroke Association of Victoria provides support to stroke survivors and carers across Victoria. Recovery from stroke is possible; but it can take an extended period of time. We are focused on ensuring community inclusion for stroke survivors by providing them with access to the individualised support they need to help them re-engage with their community and achieve a life after stroke.

Our Support Centres

We run a number of Stroke Support Centres across Victoria, focused on ensuring community inclusion for stroke survivors. Our Centres are a local hub for stroke survivors transitioning out of clinical care where they can receive support and education on real-life needs and services.

Our aim is to bridge the gap from when a stroke survivor leaves clinical care to when they are able to re-engage with their community. Our Centres are open to all stroke survivors and carers, no matter what stage of the stroke recovery journey.

We also have a strong focus on carers and ensuring those persons vital to an individual’s recovery are also supported.

Peer support programs have shown to be effective for improving socialisation, healthy coping, and role attainment.
