Our work

Speakeasy is a charity for people with aphasia; a communication difficulty following a stroke or head injury.

At Speakeasy, speech and language therapists and volunteers provide long term help and support. Speakeasy offers different activities for people to practise their communication, learn new skills and increase confidence. More about us



Aphasia is an acquired communication difficulty. It can happen after a stroke or other type of damage to the parts of the brain involved with language.

People who have aphasia may find it difficult to use and understand speech, to read and write. Read more about aphasia and how it affects lives.
