The AAC Evidence Base research project is a three-year project funded by the National Lottery through Big Lottery Fund.  Communication Matters is leading the project and working with three research partners: University of Sheffield, Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Manchester Metropolitan University.  The project aims to improve the quality of life of people with severe communication impairments who need AAC by raising awareness of their needs and by improving service provision.

We are pleased to announce that David Morgan has been appointed as Research Lead for the project. David was formerly Director of Dynavox UK. He will work closely with the Trustees and Katie Holmes, the Research Manager, to ensure that the project delivers its outcomes. David will be working one day per month initially, increasing to two days per month during the last 6 months of the project.
