Cork Stroke Support Group

Facilitate sharing of information, provide support and encouragement in an open and relaxed environment for Stroke Survivors.
Organize activities with emphasis on enjoyment and social engagement, encourage independence through exercise and enabling activities and represent the needs of Stroke Survivors.

Our Vision is “A World of fewer Strokes and better lives for stroke survivors and their families”

CSSG provides a meeting place for people to come together, sharing similar challenges, concerns and offer support and advice on living with stroke. A telephone information and support service is provided, reducing anxiety once discharged from hospital. We currently offer education sessions with guest speakers, information leaflets, a range of activities such as Boccia,Yoga/Mindfulness, social outings, exercise/hydrotherapy classes, an opportunity to sing with the CSSG choir and peer support to new stroke survivors. The term stroke survivor focuses on a person’s resilience, hopefulness and ability. CSSG members demonstrate this in abundance with their enthusiasm, attitude and support for each other. CSSG has been described by members as being like family and that the support has been immeasurable.

The Cork Stroke Support Group (CSSG) was launched in 2010 with the support of the Irish Heart Foundation. Focused on addressing the needs of those affected by Stroke (survivors and family members), CSSG held its first session in January 2011. It is now one of the most successful stroke support groups in the Country, obtaining a HSE excellence award in 2016, the Cork City Lord Mayors Award for Social Inclusion & Equality in 2014 and Irish Heart Foundation Awards in 2012 & 2013. CSSG is a voluntary organization with charitable status (097 89036 – 0000IJ) run by informed volunteers (stroke survivors, family members, healthcare professionals).
