“Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.”

Volunteers are integral to the success of our programmes. Every volunteer is greatly valued and will undergo induction and orientation workshops to ensure their comfort and confidence on the job.

(Potential volunteers undergoing an orientation programme, learning more about stroke and how they can inspire stroke survivors)

During the training, volunteers gain insights about stroke and learn more about stroke awareness and prevention. Volunteerism means taking up a hands-on and practical approach. Volunteers will have a
chance to undergo personalised training from physiotherapists on supportive methods and assistance for stroke survivors during therapy and wellness sessions.

There are 3 different ways which you can help support stroke survivors and caregivers:

1) Service-based:

Support and guide stroke survivors during programmes and activity-based restorative exercises, as well as communication and cognition sessions to aid stroke survivors in reaching their maximum recovery potential.

2) Skill-based:

Registered physiotherapists, occupational, and speech therapists can use their professional knowledge to support
stroke survivors in their area of expertise.

3) Event-based

Volunteers can assist in event organisation, photography, excursion support, and facilitating festive celebrations to bond with, bring joy, and provide moral support for stroke survivors on their recovery journey.
