InterAct Stroke Support is the only UK charity dedicated to supporting stroke recovery by using professional actors to deliver a live and interactive reading service to people who have had a stroke in hospitals and at stroke clubs.


InterAct Stroke Support works to improve the rate and quality of an individual's recovery from a stroke by:

  • improving mood
  • alleviating post-stroke depression
  • increasing self-esteem
  • boosting communication confidence
  • stimulating the brain
  • providing entertainment

We currently read in 21 hospitals and over 50 stroke clubs in the UK.
