Reading to stroke survivors
is invaluable post-stroke support

InterAct Stroke Support is a charity dedicated to supporting stroke recovery

Following a stroke (also referred to as a 'brain attack'), reading and conversational interaction is proven to: stimulate the brain, boost memory and communication skills, improve mood and alleviate depression

InterAct is an award winning charity dedicated to supporting stroke recovery through reading and storytelling. InterAct employs a team of professional actors to deliver a rich variety of reading material that is selected to suit the needs of each stroke patient. Our approach can help stimulate memory, engage language, and lift spirits - ultimately alleviating symptoms of post stroke depression which can slow or even arrest recovery.

InterAct's employs over 100 professional actors, reading in 20 hospitals and over 29 stroke clubs across the United Kingdom as well as leading a variety of community projects.
