Make a Bequest


Making provision in your Will to donate to the Gisborne Stroke Support Group is a way to provide for ongoing services and support for stroke survivors in our area.

If you are considering a bequest to the Gisborne Stroke Support Group, and would like to touch base in person, you can contact us direct at

Adding a bequest to your Will needn't be complicated - in most cases adding an addition (codicil) to your Will is all that's required. To make sure your addition is legal we recommend to have your legal advisor check and approve the detail.

Kia ora and welcome to our site

We're here to support all stroke survivors, their families, whānau, friends and carers throughout their stroke journey. Gisborne Stroke Support provides information, advice, education and advocacy services throughout the Tairawhiti Region.


We believe the survivor’s circle of support are the core to their recovery. Our programs and support are provided to the stroke community for free. We work closely with the healthcare community to ensure stroke survivors are receiving professional care and support.


Stroke can be overwhelming for people affected by stroke but many go on to live a normal life. Gains can happen quickly or over time. The most rapid recovery usually occurs during the first three to four months after a stroke, but some stroke survivors continue to recover well into the first and second year post-stroke recovery.

Our member programs and events

Gisborne Stroke Support are committed to providing programs that support stroke survivors to continue their progress and work toward living an independent life free of disability.

The support programs include all areas of stroke rehabilitation that stroke survivors need to help remove barriers and improve quality of life.


Families, whānau and friends are welcome to attend group meetings.
