Fundraising for Communication Matters

Thank you for looking at this page and for your help and support for Communication Matters.

As a charity, we rely heavily on donations and fundraising to be able to meet our aims to increase awareness about AAC, improve service standards, encourage research and influence government for change.

If you are planning to fundraise in our name, please contact the office as we can help promote your event.

Join Us for the Communication Matters 3.4 Challenge!

Our 34th AAC Conference was due to be held on 13-15th September 2020, but sadly had to be cancelled because of COVID-19. Instead please join us in fundraising at the halfway point in Spring 2021 by doing your own 3.4 Challenge.

There are many ways you can help (big or small)! Scroll down for some ideas:
