SNSA Befriending Training Slides By Dr Kinjal Doshi and Ms Stacey Henderson:

SNSA has teams of volunteers who visit stroke patients at hospitals. Volunteers will offer a listening ear, encouragement, support and advice to stroke patients and their caregivers during their time of need. Many of our volunteers are themselves stroke survivors, and understand the feelings and concerns of those who have suffered from a stroke.

Befriending services are currently held in these hospitals:
