Communication is crucial, for everyone

At I CAN, we unlock potential, improve access to education, empower parents and children to communicate better and work hard to give children a voice. But we cannot do this alone. We need your help to ensure that no child is left out or left behind because of a difficulty speaking or understanding. Whether you would like to fundraise, volunteer, make a donation or campaign, we would love to hear from you.



The generosity of our supporters is crucial in enabling us to reach more children, young people and their families.

Whatever the size of your gift, by partnering with us you will help us ensure that no child is left out or left behind because of a difficulty in speaking or understanding.

If you are interested in making a donation to I CAN, we would be delighted to hear from you. Please get in touch with our Principal Philanthropy Manager at or 020 7843 2532 to discuss the impact of your support.


A true partnership benefits all parties – we look forward to hearing about your CSR and charitable aims and purpose and will work with you to create a bespoke partnership. Working with I CAN will be immersive, unique, uplifting and impactful. Let’s talk!

Print Data Solutions Ltd (PDS) are extremely proud to have supported I CAN since the start of our relationship in 2008, not only as a supplier but as regular fundraisers, supporting their truly life changing efforts to improve the lives of children experiencing Speech, Language and Communication Needs!

Grantmakers have always been enormously important to our work; their support has made, and continues to make, a huge contribution to the achievement of our mission that no child should be left behind or be left out because of a difficulty speaking or understanding.

With our new Three-Year Plan outlining how we aim to support 250,000 new children and young people with SLCN, and the importance of partnership to achieve this goal, you have the chance to both spearhead new initiatives and boost the reach and impact of our outstanding “tried and tested” interventions. Together, we can do more.

If you would like to hear how you can make change happen, contact Lina Santeusanio at or on 020 7843 2551.
