We are Speech and Language UK – we want every child to face the future with confidence. For 1.9 million children in the UK, learning to talk and understand words feel like an impossible hurdle.

Without the right help, this can destroy their world. They feel disconnected from their family. Unable to make friends. Unfairly punished for not following instructions they don’t understand. What does the future hold for them?


We design innovative tools and training for thousands of nursery staff and teachers. We give families the confidence and skills to help their child. And we put pressure on politicians to prioritise support for children. Too many children are left waiting to be understood. Through strong partnerships we aim to bring speech and language skills into the spotlight so all children can flourish.
