We offer a range of ICT, Employability and Life Skills programmes for adults with communication and/or learning difficulties. Tuition is on a one-to-one basis or in small groups and delivered at the pace of the learner. Please see the Adult Learning tab for more information.
Our Outreach Service allows us to distribute the equipment in our Resource Library to individuals, schools, hospitals, SALT's and carers, across Kent and into Sussex and London. This service is free of charge and the communication aids are loaned for a period of six weeks at a time. Please see the Outreach Services tab for more information.
In December 2017, Find a Voice were awarded a three year grant to enable us to re-establish our Outreach Service. In May of 2018, we employed an Oureach Development Manager who's salary is provided by the Children in Need grant.
"The ability to speak is one of the most fundamental things which define us as human beings. It is what allows us to fully describe our hopes, to define our fears and to express our love. Without a voice, life is diminished - yet for many people, often as a result of illness, communication is a challenge. No charity has done more than 'find a voice' to give practical help - to restore facet of human life, the ability to communicate"
Patron - Nicholas Witchell BBC Royal Correspondant
"Find a Voice can provide is not only beneficial but invaluable. The charity has known many ups and downs, but it's strength has always come resilisence, a dedicated group of volunteers and management team unyielding in it's aims and aspirations. I am proud to be the Vice President of the most remarkable and special of charities."
"How traumatic must be the feeling of helpessness experienced by parents with a child whose learning difficulties lead to behaviour that is difficult to control. I have tremendous admiration for the charity's dedicated team and feel highly priviledge to be one of the Patrons."
Patron - Wendy Rowe Retaingroup Ltd
"Every penny spent is raised through fund-raising and grants and without those with a 'VOICE' like this charity, individuals with severe communication needs might not have the opportunity to continue to learn, to gain independence or to engage in social events. Every time I visit the 'Find a Voice' centre, I leave knowing it is not only a 'nice charity to give to', but a valuable service which adds greatly to the well-being of its clients."
