Making speech, language and communication better for young people

Your local NHS and Councils are working together to make speech, language and communication better for young people.

We want children, young people and parents to be happy with the speech, language and communication provision across the county of Dorset and we understand that people and communities have the experience and expertise that can help us shape what this might look like.

We are at the stage of co-designing how we can improve speech, language and communication. We will update this page regularly, and use social media too, to keep you up-to-date.

If you have any questions, or want to stay involved, please click on the “Want to stay involved” tab below.

Thank you.
