Stroke Association of Victoria

Barwon Stroke Support Centre

The Stroke Association of Victoria is the only dedicated community-based support service for people re-entering their lives after having a stroke. We are developing Stroke Support Centres across Victoria, focused on ensuring community inclusion for Stroke Survivors.

The Barwon Stroke Support Centre aims to bridge the gap from discharge to community re-engagement. Through effective connections with community, general practitioners and allied-health providers, we aim to assist each Stroke Survivor with their longer-term recovery. We do this through non-clinical, community-based support and self-led recovery including communication, mood, mobility and community engagement.
