"The Stroke Survivors Group
Recovering from a stroke is not just about learning to talk and walk again; it is about overcoming a sense of isolation and re-building a belief in the future after a devastating event.
The Stroke Survivors group meet each week in Paignton library to support each other in relearning computer skills they may have lost – such as sending an email or using a mouse.
Being able to use the technology gives them an opportunity to reach out to others in a similar situation and the model is now being used to develop similar clubs across the country."
This Award is part of the Technology4Good Awards 2012.
