Children and young people’s speaking and understanding needs are at the centre of everything we do. Our values enable all parts of our organisation to work together to support these needs, and to become the most effective and influential children's communication charity in the UK. Our four core values are:
We change lives and unlock potential. We act on current research and create new evidence for the sector through innovative programmes and solutions.
We work in partnership to achieve systemic change that is sustainable and replicable. We are stronger together.
We nurture and enable as many children and young people as possible to thrive socially and academically. We are the UK’s leading charity in children’s communication and we won’t compromise on quality or excellence.
We empower everyone to have their voice heard: whether I CAN staff, children and young people with SLCN or their families. We are committed to ending any unlawful or unfair discrimination, and value the difference diversity and inclusion can bring to ensuring that no-one is left out or left behind.

Evidence is a fundamental part of I CAN’s work.
It’s vital that our mission to help children develop speaking and understanding skills is based on evidence of what works.
So we draw on a vast academic research base from across the UK and the world to develop our programmes, interventions, projects and support.
When it comes to spoken language for children, we’re the UK’s leading communication charity. But we want to do more. Much more.
