Knowing you’re not alone: Understanding peer support for stroke survivors – Crane Library Web Pick of the Week

2888Stroke Association Voluntary Groups (SAVGs) are volunteer-led, peer support groups based in local communities across the UK. The Nuffield Trust was commissioned by the Stroke Association to independently evaluate the impact of the groups. This document describes the evaluation which drew on the experiences and views of stroke survivors and carers from local groups as well as Stroke Association staff and volunteers. The study included a questionnaire of stroke survivors and carers which captured self-reported measures of health and wellbeing, as well as interviews and focus groups with stroke survivors, carers, staff and volunteers.

The study results, as well as a summary, are available from the following link: http://bit.ly/2enZ1ZK
