Upcoming events 2022
Aphasia Awareness Month
To mark Aphasia Awareness Month this June 2022, we are launching a Board Game Café campaign.
We’d love you to run your own Board Game Café, to raise awareness of aphasia and funds for us here at Aphasia Re–Connect to help us keep supporting our members with aphasia.

It was lovely to see old and new friends at our Spring Party in April.

He completed the asics London 10K on 25th July, and the Windsor Great Park half-marathon on 26th September. You can support him (and us!) by donating here:
