Summary

Scope is working in partnership with BT to raise the awareness of AAC issues. Under our new campaign “No Voice, No Choice” we have been working with key third sector organisations, professionals, people who use AAC and their families to influence the Government’s agenda around assistive technologies, community equipment and the Bercow Review of children, young people, speech, language and communication.

This interactive workshop is aimed at people who are interested in campaigning on AAC issues themselves. The workshop will discuss different techniques of campaigning and look at the different people who you can influence and the structures they work in. We will think about the AAC issues you would like to raise and discuss how you can influence policy makers and parliamentarians to address these issues.
