Other notes

1Voice is a small national charity providing network and support for children and adults who communicate using augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). 1Voice was set up by a parent of a young AAC user and a speech and language therapist who saw the enormous benefit of bringing young people and their families together to develop their skills in AAC. 1Voice has been running national residential weekends for 17 years. The event is taking place this year for the first time in Hampshire to give people an opportunity in the area to attend. It is hoped that enough interest will be generated in setting up a local branch to hold regular events for local people.

The venue is fully accessible.
