North East “Still Life” After Stroke The  Stroke Photography Group

Welcome to our website

What’s it all about?


The Stroke Photography Group, is one of the activities ran through the Stoke Association, Community Integration Team, base at Team Valley, Gateshead, in conjunction with the support of Momentum Brain Injury Services, based in Newcastle


All  of the group are stroke survivors. The group is a way of getting out and about through photography based meetings and outings.  It is a chance to continue with your interest or start a new interest in photography. Not all the group own a camera but still come along to see if it is “what they are looking for”.  


We are from all walks of life but we have a common denominator, that is, that we all believe there is “life after stroke”.  Being a photographic group we hope to capture “Still Life” after stroke.


All of our lives have changed, it what happens when you are a Stroke Survivor.  Through this group it will help get you out from the same four walls.  Also give your family or friends who care for you a break and a chance to recharge their batteries.  


Some of the members said it has given them a little bit of self-esteem and confidence back, as well as a chance to socialize and make new friends.  You will meet people who have been through it and understand how you feel.


We can’t cure you....

....but we can, hopefully, help you feel better with in yourself.


Everyone one is made welcome.... The kettles always on.
