RCSLT NI Manifesto

‘Communication at the heart of health and wellbeing’.

RCSLT NI called on politicians to work with us to improve outcomes for people in Northern Ireland with communication and swallowing difficulties and support the work of the speech and language therapy profession. Our ‘high five’ manifesto asks were developed in consultation with members.

Voice Box Northern Ireland

Voice Box is Northern Ireland’s national joke competition designed to raise awareness among children of the fun and importance of communication.

Voice Box 2017 was the most successful Voice Box Awards so far with more than 3,000 school pupils taking part. The live grand final was hosted by the Lord Mayor of Belfast on 5 June 2017. All entries from the 2016 and 2017 are included in the Voice Box joke book

For further information on the Northern Ireland Voice Box in March 2017, please contact Janet McGookin

My Journey My Voice is a powerful photographs and stories exhibition designed to raise awareness about communication disability. It features the photographic portraits and audio recordings of individuals, who happen to have a communication disability, as they tell listeners about a favourite journey, in their own words. More information about the project can be found at  www.myjourneymyvoice.org/.
