(Stroke Care for Newbury & West Berkshire)


Our mission is to provide relief & practical support to residents of West Berkshire who have suffered the effects of a stroke, to their families and to their carers.

Our group is structured to support stroke survivors (and their families and carers) from hospital discharge through to independent living.

We provide a comprehensive programme of Physiotherapy, Cognitive therapy, Communication therapy, etc., targeted on rehabilitation and achieving recovery as well as confidence building, providing friendship and support.

Stroke Care for Newbury & West Berkshireis an independent registered charity (Charity number 1027003) with affiliation to The Stroke Association.

If you are a stroke survivor, you are not alone. We were formed to support you – please contact our Family Support Team to review what help is available.

If you are interested in becoming one of our incredible band of volunteers / helpers please contact our Family Support Officer.

Our service provision would not exist without financial support and we’d love it if you can help our funding in any way through donations or fundraising..

Family Support Service

Our Family Support Service is our initial point of contact for stroke survivors or their families and carers.

How does the service work?

  • We continually monitor the local hospitals for stroke survivors.
  • Either, the hospital, you, your carer or your GP can contact us for a referral.
  • We will try to arrange to visit you in hospital and/or at home.
  • We will offer information, advice and on-going support to both you, your family, and your carer.
  • You can choose to join a local stroke group for additional activities and support.

"We will listen to your concerns and problems and help you to find solutions that work for you."

Appointment of Family Support Officer

Appointment of Family Support Officer

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Fiona Forrest as our new Stroke Family Support Officer. Fiona will coordinate support services for individuals and their families dealing with the effects of a stroke.

From South Shields near Newcastle, as a school leaver, nursing was her first passion, remembering with warmth, her first posting on a psychogeriatric ward that took five locked doors to access the ward.

Fiona is married with two sons. Both her and her husband moved to Newbury from Newcastle in 1988 when she was promoted to manager of Mothercare.

Fiona brings her varied experience in nursing and management to the role.

Over the years Fiona has gained a great deal of satisfaction from giving support to people who are living with life changing illnesses such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Dementia and people adapting to life after a stroke.

We welcome Fiona and wish her all the best.
