Afasic Scotland

An average of two to three children in every classroom in Scotland has difficulties with speech, language or communication.

Afasic Scotland works with parents, professionals, local authorities and agencies across Scotland, promoting the rights, needs and aspirations of children, young people and those of their parents and carers, all whom have experience of the daily challenges that speech and language difficulties bring.

Our grant of £12,000 towards core running costs enabled Afasic Scotland to reach out to over 500 families in Scotland, providing direct support to the hundreds of requests they receive each year, and helping to significantly reduce the impact of speech impairment in children across the country.
