The Stroke Recovery Association of NSW aims to maximise the recovery of individuals who have suffered a Stroke and reduce the impact on their family/carers and the community. The Association is a focal point for information about Stroke recovery and prevention.

The Association was established in 1977 and since then has played a major role in the recovery and support of many Stroke survivors, assisted in the development of policy and best practice. It has also assisted in establishing some 52 Stroke Recovery Clubs throughout NSW.

Currently the Stroke Recovery Association provides the following services:

  • Telephone Counselling
  • Stroke Information Kits
  • Co-ordination of Stroke Recovery Clubs
  • Stroke Seminars and workshops
  • A library of books, videos and brochures
  • Regular newsletter on Stroke issues to members
  • Referrals to other services
  • Co-ordination of Stroke Awareness Week
