Surveys / Consultations

Have your say on proposed future speech, language and communication services

Parents, carers and those who work with children and young people in Suffolk with specialist speech, language and communication (SLC) needs have been invited to have their say on a proposed new model for delivering services.

The consultation runs from Monday 11 March 2019 and closes on Monday 22 April 2019.

Why we are consulting

Parent and carers and those who work with children and young people in Suffolk have told us that we need to improve the services which support the development of children’s speech, language and communication.

They told us that we need to reduce the time that children and young people wait to receive speech and language therapy. 

Visit the County Council website for more information.
