  • Occupational Therapy Service art group – patients are assessed and referred to attend by occupational therapists.  
  • To encourage patients to use their affected limb as part of on-going therapy

  • To enable patients to continue with a hobby or develop an interest in art for the first time in a group setting.  Perhaps start undertaking art activities at home.

  • To socialise with other patients.  Stroke patients with speech problems can practice speaking within a group that understands their problems – many patients with speech problems do not feel confident enough to mix with people that do not understand their problems and therefore become very isolated.

  • Art volunteers support the group by facilitating arts and crafts activities

  • Support from donations assists with provision of arts materials and activities.
