Connect is a national charity. Our vision is a world where communication disability is not a barrier to opportunity and fulfilment.

We work with people with communication disability to find new ways of talking and new ways of living.

Connect believes the best way to support people living with communication disability is through an integrated programme of therapy, education and research.

At Connect we feel it is important for people to have the possibility of long-term therapy and support. We develop therapies which are practical, creative and long term. The Connect team has experience, confidence and lots of ideas.

Communication disability and aphasia

Initially we will focus on providing services to people with communication disablilty after stroke usually known as aphasia. However, much of what we offer is relevant to people with other communication disabilities. In the future we may develop our services for these people as well.
