Dyscover is a charity offering long-term support, hope and opportunity to people who are isolated by communication problems after a stroke or head injury (a language disorder called Aphasia), and their families.
Dyscover provides long term support and opportunity to people with aphasia and their families. Aphasia is a neurological condition which affects a person's ability to find words, construct sentences and to understand language both written and spoken. Aphasia is isolating, frustrating and is usually acquired without warning, most often through stroke but can also be caused by brain injury or associated with a rare dementia.
We work to inform, support and empower people with aphasia, to manage their communication disability and to re-engage with life. We create an aphasia friendly community in which people feel included, valued and have a sense of purpose.
We offer structured conversation support groups for around 90 adults both in person and online, building on the success of our Dyscover At Home service which was developed during the pandemic. We are now able to reach even more people with aphasia.
