Welcome to Woking Strokeability
Woking Strokeability is a group set up to assist stroke survivors and help their carers. We are a small group which has charitable status. The purpose of Woking Strokeability is to provide support, aerobic and aqua aerobic exercise with qualified instructors and social events for stroke survivors and their carers.
Why the community needs this charity
We help to restore confidence and fitness. Help with getting limbs moving as much as possible. Carers need support and benefit from the contact with fellow members. Exercise is so valuable after a stroke, whatever type has been suffered. As well as therapeutic exercise we arrange outings and social events such as meals out, sailing and theatre trips.
Results and outcomes
After stroke survivors are allowed home, we provide the exercise. With exercise, mobility and confidence are improved and, in some cases, paralysed limbs are able to regain some movement.
Following on from a grant by the Local Connections Fund and crowd-funding with Aviva we have received a "Magic Little Grant" of £500 to continue providing exercise sessions open to all. This funding takes us through to the end of June. To help us contine to run these sessions into July support our Localgiving appeal.
They are chair based, instructor led, free rehabilitation Zoom sessions suitable for stroke survivors, those with similar conditions and the elderly. They are based on our successful member only sessions and include a socialisation session before and after the exercises. Our stroke rehabilitation trained instructor leads all exercise sessions.
Please help spread the word to anyone you believe may be interested. All are welcome and anyone can take part by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to get more details and an invite.
Magic Little Grants is a partnership between Postcode Society Trust, a grant-giving charity funded by players of the People's Postcode Lottery and Localgiving the UK's leading membership and support network for local charities and community groups.
