Communication Matters Projects

Communication Matters is responsible for a variety of ongoing and up and coming projects.

Communication Access UK

The wheelchair symbol is widely recognised throughout the world. More recently symbols for visual and hearing impairment have been introduced in the UK. Although there have been a number a local initiatives, there is still no one national symbol to represent communication. Businesses and other organisations know that good communication is good business. Being 'communication accessible' adds value to their service and benefits people who have a communication difficulty. Minimum standards must be met before a symbol can be displayed. People with communication disabilities are trained to assess businesses to determine if they meet the minimum standards. Customer service is improved and visitors with communication needs can be more confident if they see a symbol because staff there have been trained on how best to support them. Find out more about the CAUK Project.
