overview

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.

where your money goes

Right now, we urgently need your support for the following:

The Cork Stroke Support Centre - €75,000

Every year in Ireland, some 10,000 people suffer a stroke and 2,000 die as a result. Thousands more are left with stroke-related disabilities. Stroke has a personal, social and economical impact on the lives of those affected. There is wide recognition of the value of Stroke Support Groups to provide information and support and sustain ongoing rehabilitation goals.

We now have secured our own premises - The Cork Stroke Support Centre in Blackrock, Cork City. This will provide a more permanent base for information and support and will facilitate the planned increase in our range of enabling activities which will include counselling and therapy led sessions. We will use your funds to refurbish and renovate the centre and purchase equipment required to make the facilities fit for purpose.
