Communication Access UK

Inclusive communication for all

What is Communication Access?

Communication Access means supporting people with communication difficulties more effectively. Once an organisation commits to our free training and standards to become Communication Accessible, we will include them in our national directory. Organisations can then display the Communication Access Symbol. When people with communication difficulties see your organisation displaying the symbol, they will use your services with greater confidence.

Why is Communication Access important?

Communication is not simply about the ability to speak but also the ability to hear and understand what is said to us.

This lies at the very core of human dignity.

Millions of people across the United Kingdom have communication difficulties, including both adults and children.

Communication difficulties can occur for a range of reasons and leave millions without a voice, denying them equality of access and opportunity.
