Providing community-based peer support for stroke survivors and carers.

The Stroke Association of Victoria is a dedicated provider of community-based peer support for stroke survivors and carers, with a sole focus on non-clinical support through collaborative partnerships and volunteer support.


2017 Pitch
Funds raised: $20,850

At TFN Sydney, Stroke Association of Victoria fundraised a very worthwhile $20,850 to support the delivery of 12 training workshops that will train carers to help stroke survivors who are re-integrating into the community to lead a life post-stroke. The workshops include training in activities of daily living (ADL), mood and mental health monitoring (coping mechanisms), and peer support mentoring.
