Communication Matters is a UK-wide organisation committed to supporting people of all ages who find communication difficult because they have little or no clear speech. 

Communication Matters is also the UK Chapter of ISAAC (International Society of Augmentative and Alternative Communication), a world-wide organisation promoting the best possible communication for people with complex communication needs.

Our vision is a world where all individuals have a right to a voice through the provision of communication solutions and ongoing support services.


Our aims are to:

  • Increase awareness about AAC
  • Improve service standards
  • Encourage research
  • Involve AAC users

We do this by our:

  • Website
  • E-news
  • Journal (3 per year)
  • Annual International Conference
  • Roadshows (AAC Information Days)
  • Study Days
  • Discussion Forums
  • Contribute to Policy
