Name of organisation:
1Voice - Communicating Together
What does your organisation do?
Established since 1999, 1Voice creates opportunities to bring together children and young people who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication and their families and supporters, to share ideas, information, skills and personal experiences. We have a residential weekend every year for families, and have recently teamed up with Communication Matters for a pre-conference fun day. At these events, AAC users get the opportunity to talk to 1Voice Role Models and other adult AAC users.
With branches throughout England providing local social opportunities, 1Voice works to bring together AAC users of all ages to chat, share experiences and maintain friendships. We also publish 3 newsletters each year. Membership to the charity is free.
