“It is great to come somewhere that understands my husband’s condition. He does not feel that he is the only one now and he is benefiting from the sessions.”
Wife of adult participant
“NICE has helped to transform B’s life. It has given her the skills and confidence to overcome her disability and, to a large extent, lead a normal life. Few people would now realise that when she left hospital three months ago after her stroke, she was told she would never walk again and would not regain any movement in her right arm.”

“NICE sessions make a big, positive impact on my mobility and self-confidence. This means I can do pleasant activities with and for my family.”
“NICE has given us a structure of activity which has meant that my wife has been able to understand my condition and so we are able to tackle issues together”
