Stroke Care


For those living with strokes, mobility and other long-term disabilities, their carers and/or relatives, there are hurdles to overcome.  Stroke Care operate a range of social and community care services which focus on prevention and rehabilitation support to help address these hurdles and barriers for people affected by strokes, mobility and other related long-term health conditions.

The Stroke Care cafe is run in partnership with the Southwark Council. The cafe is based in The Southwark Disablement Centre (in the Southwark Resource Centre – SRC) and aims to actively promote social inclusion.  The cafe is open four days a week, and serves breakfast and lunch from 10am to 3pm Monday to Thursday. The Café offers ‘healthy eating’ as grounding for other ‘healthy living’ activities provided by the SRC. It is opened four days a week, serving breakfast and lunch from 10am to 3pm Monday to Thursday.

The Befriending Project matches trained and supported, local volunteers with vulnerable, elderly and socially isolated participants to create a strong befriending support network.  The volunteers provide them with advice, information, practical and emotional support to improve their independence, health and well-being and keep them living in their own homes and community for as long as possible.

The project aims to help provide participants with:
​Practical and emotional support.  Befriending support enabling them to cope with daily occurrence of life. Some degree of respite support to carers and/or relatives
