Bromley healthcare Charity - clubs and groups
We are currently able to support four different areas and are doing this in partnership with a range of specialist charities. Many also gain the support of local volunteers.
Attendance at the clubs and groups is free.
Because of the specialist nature of some of the groups, you might need to be referred by your local GP.

Supports people recovering from a stroke, in a social environment with therapy input, run by the Stroke Association.
Feedback from people who have attended the Club: “Art inspires creativity and words aren’t always necessary. Our sessions started with uncertainty but by the end we all painted in our own Monet style from the heart.”

Feedback from people who have been to the Leg Club.
Elizabeth Hunter said: “Whilst we’re waiting to have our legs washed and dressed by the nurses, we’re encouraged to join in the chair exercise class. I’ve enjoyed these sessions very much and they are beneficial and fun too. We get to know other members, male and female, and we exercise whilst socializing and having fun.”
