Cuts to The Communication Trust's funding

1 February 2018




The Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT) is concerned about the future of funding received by The Communication Trust (TCT) from the Department for Education.

TCT has been one of the RCSLT’s key partner organisations for a number of years, and we have worked together on Parliamentary influencing and a database of evidence for interventions, among other initiatives.

We are working closely with TCT to support them, including securing funding.
