Belle Isle TMO’s GATE Community Resource Centre will host a monthly ‘Aphasia Café’ from Tuesday (8 May 2018). The café will run on the second Tuesday of every month between 1-3pm.
The café is being organised by Yorkshire charity, Speak With IT.
James Major, Charity Manager for Speak With IT explains why they have organised the event:
“People with aphasia can find it hard to communicate their thoughts which can often lead them to becoming socially isolated. The idea for this café actually came from two people we already support in South Leeds, and it will provide them with a fantastic opportunity to meet up and talk in a really supportive environment.”
People with aphasia and/or their carers are invited to simply come along to the first café on 8 May – If you wish to find out more about the café or Speak With IT please contact James on 01924 580970.
