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:
- 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.
- 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!
- Some people with aphasia find playing word-based games a fun way to work on their speech and language.
