Campaigns and projects

  • Giving Voice
    The Giving Voice campaign aims to ‘give voice’ to people with speech, language and communication needs – to ensure their needs, and those of their carers and families, are met. We equip our members to demonstrate locally how speech and language therapy makes a difference to individuals and society, whilst RCSLT officers work to engage decision makers and the media at a national level.
  •  Dementia campaign
    The dementia campaign aims to raise awareness of the role of SLTs in dementia, and improve the quality of care received by people with dementia and their families.
  •  Youth offenders and criminal justice
    This campaign draws attention to the fact that over 60% of people in the justice system have speech, language and communication problems. Improving the communication skills of offenders by providing speech and language therapy significantly reduces the risk of re-offending and increases access to to rehabilitation and treatment programmes.
  •  Improvements in stroke care
  •  Earlier campaigns
