With school holidays in full swing, there are lots of activities and events going on in August. What do you want to do?

I always find myself really busy in August. Not only are there a lot of events going on. But there is also that feeling that autumn and winter are on the horizon. So I better get out and about while the weather is still (mostly) good.

In today's blog, we've brought together links to lots of different activities and events you can try out this August.

Stroke Association activities and events

We'll start off with activities and events targeted specifically at stroke survivors.

Get involved in your local support and stroke groups

Stroke groups are a great way to meet other stroke survivors. Many of these groups put on activities and events throughout the year. It's a great way to meet and support other people who know what you're going through.

You can find your local (or online) group by searching on this page.

Online stroke activities hub

Our online stroke activities hub was born out of lockdown. But it has been such a success, we've kept it going.

We run multiple activities every week. Some of these are purely social, like our weekly quizzes. Others give you a chance to learn a new skill, like our genealogy sessions. You could join in with the weekly exercise group or just have a chat about how your stroke has affected you.

You can download the activities programme and sign up here.

As you can see, there are hundreds of fun activities and events in August. Some are out in nature and others can be done from the comfort of your own home. I hope this blog helps you find the ones that are right for you. Enjoy!
