75 years of RCSLT

1945 - 2020

The RCSLT is celebrating its 75th anniversary in 2020! We are excited to mark the occasion with a year of celebrating the past, present and future of the speech and language therapy profession.

We will be working on a range of resources and activities throughout 2020, including downloadable content, stories, competitions and social media campaigns. If you're planning a 75th celebration in 2020, please let us know – we'd love to hear about it!

Stay tuned to the RCSLT website and social media feeds to find out more about what’s in store.


Celebrate with us

Bulletin wants your help to celebrate the RCSLT’s 75th anniversary in print and online!

One of our key aims throughout the anniversary year will be to look at ways of connecting the profession’s past with its future.

How members can help

  • Share a piece of professional advice with us that’s stood you in good stead throughout your career. Perhaps it’s something you’d to say to your younger self, to remind you of why you became an SLT. What do you know now that you wished you’d known then?
  • Or maybe you want to look to the future and think about where you want to be, or the changes you want to see in the profession?
  • We’d also love you to send in your photographs. We’d love you to take a snapshot of the profession that’s illustrative of now. What aspect of the profession do you want to present to future SLTs? What technology, device or intervention do you want to showcase and tell them: ‘I did this’?
  • Bulletin is also on the look-out for your 75th anniversary celebrations for our news section – tell us how your service is planning to raise awareness of speech and language therapy and those the profession helps to support.

Tweet @rcslt_bulletin with your contributions or email us with ‘RCSLT 75th anniversary’ in the subject header and we’ll publish a selection in Bulletin over the course of next year.
