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 uses only professional actors to deliver a stimulating and rich variety of reading material that is specially selected to suit the needs of the stroke patient. By doing so InterAct works to stimulate memory, engage language, and lift spirits. We offer in person, and virtual readings. 

InterAct's 160 professional actors read in 18 hospitals and over 50 stroke clubs across the United Kingdom as well as leading a variety of community projects.
