Young People Projects

New peer support website for young people
The AYPH Be Healthy project has launched a brand new website about peer support. The site has been created by two Health Advocates from the project. They conducted peer research to find out what support young people are giving to their friends and how they could be helping each other even more. The website has been specifically designed to work well on mobile phones.
Please spread the news!

Newham Stroke Club

Affected by stroke? You're not alone! Established in 2004, the Stroke Club covers Newham and is open to people of all ages:
  • Mondays and Wednesdays, 2pm – 5pm
  • Katherine Road Community Centre, E7 8PN
They provide a focal point for people who have had a stroke and live in East London. Get support from people with similar experiences!

The group brings together people with similar problems who can share their experiences and, through this, learn new ways of coping with all the 
challenges of everyday life after a stroke. They offer varied activities (physical activity, yoga, games, garden projects, outings and have visiting speakers, and do much more....), a friendly chat and a cup tea on your visit. 

Members are encouraged to participate actively and where possible, to improve their communication skills.
