Petition Increase investment in Speech and Language Therapy.

We want the Government to increase investment in speech and language therapy so people of all ages - babies, children and young people, and adults - with communication and/or swallowing needs can get the support they and their families need.

More details

Thousands of people across the country with communication and/or swallowing needs require timely access to speech and language therapy.

But for too long, there has not been enough funding for speech and language therapy services. Nor has the current and future speech and language therapy workforce been properly planned for.

We are calling on the Government to increase investment in speech and language therapy, so people can get the support they and their families need.
