Better Communication CIC

Better Communication is a Community Interest Company - a not-for-profit organisation which has been formed to support the implementation of change in the commissioning and provision of services for children and young people with speech, language and communication needs (SLCN).

Better Communication CIC is committed to enhancing the evidence base around the factors which really make a difference in terms of impact for children and young people.

Our aim is simple: to make the best use of resources to ensure that the right people work with the right children in the right place and at the right time.

The work of Better Communication CIC is built around the Balanced System framework. The Balanced System has been developed over ten years of research and practice and is used by an increasing number of organisations to underpin both commissioning specifications and provider service models.

The lead practitioner is Marie Gascoigne. Marie has brought together a team of associates with a wide range of expertise and backgrounds in order to provide commissioners, managers and practitioners with access to training, advice and consultancy support to implement change.

Better Communication CIC, working with third sector partners, will be developing support for parents who are navigating services for their children.
