What We Do
The Communication Trust is a coalition of over 50
Working together we support everyone who works with children and
young people in England to support their speech, language and
Our work focuses on supporting children and young people who
struggle to communicate because they have speech, language and
communication needs (SLCN) as well as supporting all children and
young people to communicate to the best of their ability.
We do this because our ability to communicate affects us in
every aspect of our lives. Many children could be helped to
communicate better and some children need really focused support to
reach their full potential.
No child or young person should be denied that opportunity.

Who we work with
The Trust was founded by Afasic, BT, the Council for Disabled
Children and I CAN. They recognised that in order to make a lasting
impact for children and young people, particularly those with SLCN,
we need to work collaboratively and collectively.
Since 2007 we have brought together over 50 organisations,
combining the efforts of the not-for profit sector and working
constructively with Government and civil society to ensure positive
outcomes for children and young people.
