Aphasia Re-Connect Board Game Café

Raise awareness and support us by playing board games!

We are launching a new fundraising pack for you to run your own Board Game Café in support of Aphasia Re-Connect, during this Aphasia Awareness month (June 2022).

We’d love for you to get together with your friends, family, or work colleagues to play board games and have a good time, whilst raising awareness of aphasia and funds to support our work.

Why board games?

We decided to run a Board Game Café fundraising campaign for three reasons:

  1. Board games are a great way to bring people together and have fun, even when you are not talking. There’s a game for everyone, of any age or ability.
  2. Many popular word-based games, like Bananagrams and Scrabble, can give you a small insight into the frustrating experience of having aphasia. Under pressure, it can be difficult to come up with the words or answers you want!
  3. Some people with aphasia find playing word-based games a fun way to work on their speech and language.
