Swallowing Awareness Day 2024

Swallowing Awareness Day is a time to raise awareness of how speech and language therapists (SLTs) help people living with eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties.

Eating, drinking and swallowing is an essential part of most people’s day and is often taken for granted, but for some people it is not that easy. Eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties, also known as dysphagia, can affect a person’s quality of life and can lead to other health complications. This is why SLTs have a pivotal role in this area.  

This year’s Swallowing Awareness Day takes place on Wednesday 13 March, as part of Nutrition and Hydration Week.

We have created a range of resources in English and Welsh to support your Swallowing Awareness Day activity including posters and social media graphics, and this year you can also order stickers.

Don’t forget to use #SwallowAware2024 and keep the conversation about eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties going.

Posters

We have created a suite of posters for Swallowing Awareness Day 2024 in both English and Welsh. You can preview the English versions below.

Due to their size, the posters have been compressed into one zip file which you simply download. Once downloaded you can double click the zip file to open (or you may need to right-click on the file and select “extract all”) which will create a folder with 10 poster files ready for printing.
