  • Guidance in form filling and dealing with outside organisations
  • Support for families and carers

Harlow Stroke Support Group was formed in 1996 as a telephone support line, but since then we have grown and we are now offering vital services to stroke survivors and their families thorough sessions held at The Great Parndon Community Association in Abercrombie Way, Harlow, CM18 6YJ.
