About Norwich Aphasia Choir

We are in the process of setting up an aphasia choir in Norwich. More than 350,000 people in the UK have aphasia. Aphasia is a language difficulty, often resulting from stroke or acquired brain injury. It can affect an individual’s ability to understand information, express themselves, read and write. Aphasia can reduce social connections and friendships, resulting in reduced confidence and isolation.
It is common for people with aphasia to retain their ability to sing or hum a melody. Group singing has been found to improve wellbeing and provide peer support, as well as potential to improve communication skills.

We are looking for volunteers to support the running of the choir on a Friday morning, once a month. If you would like to get involved, please contact Elissa Manzi (Choir leader).
