“No one speaks for me here…..I get plenty time to say what I want”

These services are provided in partnership with the NHS in response to individual need. The aim is to provide a bridge for service users between speech and language therapy and independent activities in the community.

  • Support can be given to an individual either in hospital, at home or in the community.
  • Having a social chat with a volunteer in a relaxed setting helps overcome any anxiety about loss of words
  • A trained communication partner supports the individuals to achieve their personal goals.
  • The outcome of this kind of service is increased confidence and ability to communicate in a variety of social settings.
