InterAct Reading Service is the only UK charity dedicated to supporting stroke recovery by using professional actors to deliver a live and interactive reading service to people who have had a stroke in hospitals and at stroke clubs.
InterAct Reading Service works to improve the rate and quality of an individual's recovery from a stroke by:
- improving mood
- alleviating post-stroke depression
- increasing self-esteem
- boosting communication confidence
- stimulating the brain
- providing entertainment
We currently read in 22 hospitals and over 50 stroke clubs in the UK.
