TALK Surrey


Tuesday Volunteers needed at our Guildford Groups

 

TALK Surrey CIO is a local charity that supports people with Aphasia, a communication difficulty after a stroke. TALK has been running for over 20 years and we currently have 5 groups in the Surrey area. We run weekly (term time only) 2 hour sessions, with a different theme each week.

 

We are currently looking for volunteers at both our Guildford groups, on Tuesday mornings and afternoons. You will be supporting our stroke recoverers on a one to one basis, with a range of activities including discussions, pictures, word and number worksheets, quizzes, art therapy, music therapy and table-top gardening.

 

Full ongoing training, support and guidance is given.
