Our Relationship with I CAN

We are proud to be part of I CAN, the children’s communication charity.


Our vision is a world where all children have the communication skills they need to fulfil their potential.


Our mission is that no child is left out, or left behind, because of difficulties speaking or understanding.


Our Core Values

Children and young people’s communication 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 charity in the UK supporting children’s speech, language and communication.  Our four core values are:


Impactful - Delivering real change for those affected by speech, language and communication needs

We change lives and unlock potential.  We act on current research and create new evidence for the sector through innovative programmes and solutions.


Collaborative - Putting children and young people at the centre of everything we do

We work in partnership to achieve systemic change that is sustainable and replicable.  We are stronger together.


Aspirational - Nurturing and enabling children and young people, and ourselves, to thrive

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.


No Voice Unheard - Recognising that everyone has a valuable contribution to make

We empower everyone to have their voice heard: whether I CAN staff, children and young people with speech, language and communication needs (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.
