Communication Access UK is a partnership between charities and organizations that share a vision to improve the lives of people living with communication disabilities. The Steering Group is chaired by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists.

The aim of the Steering Group has been to coordinate the early adopter phase and roll out of the symbol. The official launch of the website www.communication-access.co.uk and free eLearning resource was in November 2020. If a business displays the symbol, it means that staff have received training and that people with communication difficulties are welcome.

There has been ongoing engagement with Health, Education, Local Authority, Retail and Leisure Organisations with over 2000 signing up to date.

The session will outline the process (and roller coaster ride!) from the initial vision through to the present day.
