Ref: V117 | Stroke Group Supporter | Nailsea, North Somerset BS48 2DS
We’re looking for 3 Stroke Group Supporters, over the age of 18 years old, based at Nailsea Methodist Church, Silver Street, Nailsea, North Somerset, BS48 2DS.
You’ll be volunteering weekly, on Wednesdays 9:45am – 12:15pm.
Stroke Association Voluntary Groups provide long term social and peer support to people affected by stroke. They organise events and meet together to reduce social isolation and rebuild the confidence of members. Stroke group supporters assist in the running of one (or more) of these local groups and help support the group members.
The volunteer will:
- Be someone who is good at working with people and helping to support them at meetings and events.
- Enjoy helping with community group activities and working with others.
- Need to have a friendly and approachable manner and be comfortable welcoming people to the group.
This role would be particularly interesting for anyone with lived experience of stroke as survivor, family member, friend or carer. However all lived experience is valuable and everyone is welcome to apply.
A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check is required for this role.
Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, our voluntary groups aren’t currently meeting, however we look to use this time to offer virtual training for our appointed Stroke Group Supporter, so that they can be ready for when our groups restart again, which is planned for July 2021.

Stroke Association. Rebuilding lives after stroke.
When stroke strikes, part of your brain shuts down. And so does a part of you. That’s because a stroke happens in the brain, the control centre for who we are and what we can do. It happens every five minutes in the UK and changes lives instantly. Recovery is tough, but with the right specialist support and a ton of courage and determination, the brain can adapt.
We believe everyone deserves to live the best life they can after stroke. And it’s a team effort to get there.
We provide specialist support, fund critical research and campaign to make sure people affected by stroke get the very best care and support to rebuild their lives.
Every five minutes, stroke destroys lives. Help us rebuild them and join our team.
