BASH provides friendship and mutual support for those who have aphasia together with their carers/partners. 

We organise events on the 3rd Friday of each month in St Andrew’s Church Hall, Kimbolton Road, Bedford.

The first hour is usually a talk or demonstration on a subject of general interest and this is followed by refreshments and general socialising.

We also organise a Summer lunch and Christmas lunch and these take place at local pubs or restaurants.

Anyone who has been affected by aphasia and is interested in becoming a member is welcome to come along to our meetings on a trial basis before making any commitment.
