Conversation Groups

Everyone is welcome at any of the groups we currently have running. They are free to attend.

You are welcome to simply arrive on the day. If you would like to speak with our Volunteer Coordinator first to get a sense of what occurs in the groups, please get in touch with us via aphasiawa@gmail.com with your name and best contact number. We will endeavour to contact you as soon as possible.

Visit this page often as we are planning to expand the number of groups available across WA. We will also post regularly on our Facebook page, so please like our Facebook page at @AphasiaWa
