Welcome to InterAct Stroke Support

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.


£25,000 could be InterAct Stroke Support's with your help!

We have been nominated for an MCF Community Award.  We need your vote! Help us win up to £25,000 by clicking on  www.mcf.org.uk/vote/region/london  and voting for InterAct Stroke Support. 

It’s up to the public to decide which charities get the largest grants through this online vote in the MCF Community Awards.  We are the only Stroke charity nominated in London. 

The vote is open from now – until 31 July 2017.

Once you have voted, please encourage your friends, family and colleagues to do the same.  This will make a world of difference for us. £25,000 would deliver our service 3 times a week at two hospitals for a full year, and one hospital twice a week for a full year.
