Fund improved support for people with communication and swallowing needs

Petition Details

We want the Government to improve the lives of people of all ages with communication and swallowing needs by ensuring they are able to access the speech and language therapy that they and their families and carers need.

Additional Information

The ability to communicate and eat and drink safely are basic human rights. Yet as shown in a recent report by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (Speech and language therapy during and beyond COVID-19) too many people have not been able to access the speech and language therapy they need during the COVID-19 pandemic, making their lives worse in a number of ways, including their mental health. We are calling on the Government to implement the report's recommendations.
