Your view is being sought by the Communication Access UK Project on which symbol you would like to see businesses and organisations throughout the UK use to show that communication access is supported there. The project consultation has reached a second stage and there's still an opportunity for you to vote before the 28th February 2018 deadline!

In May 2017, our information officer Allan wrote a blog about this project to select a Communication Access Symbol and at that stage a choice of 5 possible symbols were being considered. These had been selected by the project group, consisting of partners from Communication Matters, the Stroke Association and the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists. Following an initial survey seeking response to the 5 symbols, 2 symbols were chosen as the most popular, leading to a second stage consulation, launched in November last year.

So your views are sought on these symbols:

Overall the majority decision is that '2 heads' represents total communication most clearly but, in the light of numerous comments received as to how this could look, it is felt that we still do not have a definitive symbol. There has also been considerable support for the 'message bubble' from the feedback from business.' says Communication Matters.

The project group want to ensure that responses include people with all types of communication difficulties, as several 'gaps' in responses were identified in the earlier consultation stages.
