Reading to stroke survivors
is invaluable post-stroke support

"This is wonderful. You stimulate my imagination and I can see it all!"

- Hospital Patient


InterAct Stroke Support is a charity dedicated to supporting stroke recovery


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.


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.
