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.

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 Three-Year Plan outlining how we aim to double our reach of children and young people with speech, language and communication difficulties, in your role as funder you have the chance to both spearhead new initiatives and boost the reach and impact of our outstanding “tried and tested” interventions.

Other ways to support I CAN

People everywhere continue to take action so that children and young people with SLCN can find their voice: jumping off planes, climbing mountains, bake sales, rounds of golf.  You name it, it’s happening up and down the country.  And if fundraising is not your bag, there are other ways for you to help:

  • Take action as part of our Bercow: Ten Years On, whether by sharing the report; asking your children’s school about their SCLN provisions; writing to your local MP or putting I CAN and SLCN on your organisation’s agenda, there is always something you can do!
  • Your story is powerful; share it with us to help raise awareness and drive change;
  • Share your expertise pro-bono so we can do more (and better) to help those who need us;

Whatever you choose to do, it will directly help children and young people with SLCN and their families.  So add your voice to ours for children and young people who struggle to communicate.
