What does it do?

A case worker is available to assist you to access services that you may require to support your return to day-to-day life. 
Advice and support is available for practical things like:
 · filling in forms
· applying for benefits
· assistance with looking at housing needs
· assistance with adaptations that are required
· arrange other practical assistance
· support to return back into employment
· signposting to other relevant services/agencies
· put people in contact with other Stroke survivors
· or just be a listening ear!
 Support and advice
We can help you to link with existing Support Groups or help you to set up a new Self Help Group through Bassetlaw Self Help which is also based at Bassetlaw Action Centre.
Participating in a self-help group can provide a platform during the rehabilitation journey, and gives you access to someone to talk to about your experiences.
