Communication Access Project
Training begins 23-24 September
Last chance to join!
Is your service accessible to people with communication difficulties?
The SLCSN is commissioning an exciting new Communication Access Project with Connect: the Communication Disability Network
The project aims to improve communication access to services working with stroke survivors with a communication difficulty.
Champions needed for participation
We are recruiting a number of communication champions to receive a 2-day Communication Access Toolkit training session at Connect. This will equip the champion with all of the resources required to cascade the training (at least 3 times) to different groups of colleagues and evaluate its impact.
The champion will receive ongoing support and attend a mentoring day to receive additional support. A final evaluation day will allow champions to showcase service changes to a panel of local experts with aphasia.
What are the benefits?
- Help to meet a range of National Stroke Strategy Quality Markers
- QM1: Awareness
- QM3: Information
- QM4: Involving service users
- QM13: Long term advice and support
- Receive practical advice on improving communication access for all service users, not just stroke survivors
- Attend complimentary 2-day training session at Connect plus mentoring and support throughout the project
- Enjoy networking with those in similar projects across London
- Raise awareness of communication access for service development issues (e.g. patient reported outcomes, user involvement in service development)
Who can be a champion?
Champions can come from any background - they do not need to be a health professional but must:
- Work in any part of the stroke pathway (health, social or voluntary services)
- Be passionate/enthusiastic about communication
- Have experience of or an interest in training others
- Ideally Band 5 or higher (not essential if other criteria are met)
