The RCSLT was generously left £5000 by the family of Penny Harrison, a speech and language therapist.

Part of this fund was allocated to subsidise the delegate fee for RCSLT student/newly-qualified practitioner/assistant practitioner (associate) members attending the RCSLT Conference 2017.

Penny worked closely with the RCSLT over many years: had been involved on projects with assistants; carried-out service reviews on behalf of the RCSLT and attended Council as Chair of TASLTM.

RCSLT student/newly-qualified practitioner/assistant practitioner (associate) member were invited to apply for a subsidy for their RCSLT Conference 2017 early bird delegate fee, from the Penny Harrison Memorial Fund:

  • £50 discount off the RCSLT member one-day rate: £150 inc VAT with grant
  • £75 discount off the RCSLT member two-day rate: £205 inc VAT with grant

The number of subsidised places was strictly limited.

Successful applicants were sent a unique identification code and instructions on how to book a place via Eventbrite. Please note that this code could only be used once, by the authorised recipient.
