On Thursday 6th May 2021 Wales is due to go to the polls in the Senedd Cymru/Welsh Parliament election 2021. Welsh Labour, Welsh Conservatives, Plaid Cymru, Welsh Liberal Democrats, UKIP, Abolish the Welsh Parliament, the Welsh National Party and the Green party will battle it out to win 60 seats – 40 past the post constituencies and 20 top-up regional list seats.

The RCSLT Wales team have been working hard to raise awareness of the needs of people with speech language and communication support needs and/or swallowing difficulties, and the role of the profession in improving their lives amongst prospective candidates. We have worked with members to design a key manifesto asks document and have shared this in meetings with manifesto leads of all the main parties.

You can see the full manifesto in English and Welsh here.

Get involved

We are keen to increase awareness of our calls across political parties and with as many politicians as possible and would strongly encourage Welsh members to get involved in our campaign. We have lots of ideas and support available to help you do this, so do please get in touch to find out more (e-mail caroline.walters@rcslt.org). Do let us know how you’re getting on by tagging us on twitter (our handle is @rcsltwales).
