She reports it has made a huge difference in his life as it is giving him something to do and gives him a purpose. He sometimes uses it when visitors come to the house and it “all gets a bit much”.

The small grant allowed us to quickly progress an idea raised by a relative. The grant application process and reporting back to the Trustees during the year was also beneficial in making the most of the project. The grant has allowed us to demonstrate that the Aphasia Partners group is valued by the partners of people with aphasia and our Trust is now willing to make the resources available for this to be an established part of our aphasia pathway.
