LEGS (Local Exercise Groups for Stroke) is a physiotherapy led rehabilitation project, consisting of a weekly evidence-based exercise and discussion/social support session for people who have had a stroke.

LEGS' core ethos is that our sessions are open to all individuals regardless of income, address or level of disability (as long as they can be safely accommodated in the group). We only charge a small fee to attend (which we have found facilitates adherence to the programme and contributes to people's empowerment), so our costs are subsidised by our fundraising efforts and we achieved UK Registered Charity Status in March 2018 (Charity Number 1177659). By becoming a Charity, as opposed to a clinically commissioned service, we are free to provide the service we feel is most effective, to as many as people as we can and we have always co-developed the service in response to feedback from our participants and the best clinical evidence we can find. We have 4 trustees responsible for the Charity, including our Physiotherapist and Founder who also operates as our CEO.

Marriage Care helps couples and individuals build and sustain strong, fulfilling healthy relationships, as well as providing counselling support in times of relationship difficulty regardless of ability to pay. And we’ve been doing this for over 70 years from almost 100 counselling locations across England and Wales.
Most couples have relationship problems sometimes. Our relationship counsellors are skilled at helping you understand how to make your relationship work and will support you in finding your own solutions. Call us between 9am-6pm from Monday to Friday on 0800 389 3801 to make an appointment.
We don’t charge a fixed fee for our counselling service. Each counselling session costs Marriage Care more than £40 to put on, and your counsellor will ask for a contribution bearing this cost in mind. However you will not be turned away because you cannot afford to give very much. If you’re a UK tax payer, you can add Gift Aid to your donation.
For couples getting married or committing to a long term relationship, our specially designed, thought-provoking marriage preparation courses will equip you with insights and know-how, clarity and confidence to build the best possible future together. For further information visit www.marriagecare.org.uk or call 0800 389 3801
