THE SPEECH, LANGUAGE AND HEARING FOUNDATION
The Speech Language and Hearing Foundation (SLHF) is a grant making Trust.
It makes donations to promote the education, therapy and research for children who have difficulties with hearing, speech and language.
WHAT WE DO
The SLHF supports charities working in the following areas:
Children who have hearing impairment, speech delay, language or communication difficulties, or who have complex needs.
Medical innovation and new developments relating to these children.
Research in all topics relating to these children.
Projects funded by the SLHF include:
Part time speech and language therapists for schools with high levels of deprivation and children who do not meet the criteria for EHCP’s.
Post graduate training in Educational Audiology at Mary Hare School.
The acoustic treatment of classrooms by The Jewish Deaf Association.
Research into Childhood Deafness by RNID.
A Pilot project for ICAN’s Award winning ‘Tots Talking’ Programme
The provision of laptops for speech and language therapy.
Although the majority of the donations go to local projects, the SLHF has supported inspiring projects further afield, such as:
Hearing aids to a medical centre in India and a School for the Deaf in South Africa.
Technological development for online learning at a Centre for disabled children in Israel.
