At Aphasia Re-Connect we make sure that people with aphasia are at the centre of everything we do, working in equal partnership, to develop and deliver services for people experiencing communication disability. Building on their strengths, life experience, and expertise in living with aphasia, they take on roles as peer supporters, advisors, peer befrienders, peer trainers and trustees. To see our peer-led philosophy in practice, visit our weekly drop-ins, conversation and music groups.
