Why support Afasic?
The hidden disability of speech, language and communication impairments affects over one million children and young people across the UK.
These children and young people will find it hard to make the most of their education and reach their potential. They will struggle to make friends
and may become socially isolated.
For many, these difficulties can lead to depression and other mental health problems. They will find it hard to lead an independent live and can become increasingly excluded from society.
Afasic supports and helps these children and young people, and acts as a voice for them. We provide a variety of workshops and after-school clubs promoting social and educational inclusion, and work to raise awareness of this hidden disability. Further, we operate a UK wide helpline service, supporting parents and carers and providing advice.
You and your business can help Afasic continue to make a difference to the lives of children and young people across the UK with speech, language and communication difficulties.
