Talking Mats is a social enterprise whose vision is to improve the lives of people with communication difficulties. 2015 has been another exciting year for us. We have had great opportunities to work with a fantastic range of people and hear great stories: from wee ones in nurseries using Talking Mats to encourage active participation and decision making, to older people and their families through our dementia family training project. It is our core belief that good communication is fundamental to a quality service. Making sure there is space for active listening to views and concerns particularly, if individuals have difficulties communicating is central to effective interactions and individualised, person centered care. We are really grateful to all the people who have supported the work of Talking Mats; people with communication support needs, staff who work with them and organisations that we are privileged to work with on a consultancy basis.
It will not surprise you to know that as an organisation we like to set goals and then go for them so as our thank you to you all for your continued support , we have created our very own New Year’s resolution Talking Mats;
• What are you definitely going to go for ?
