Speech and Language Difficulties APPG

First Registered: 29/09/2015 • Last updated on: 22/07/2022

To make parliament aware that the ability to communicate is a crucial life skill for all; to increase awareness about the impact communication difficulties have on other people's lives; to highlight the importance of early identification and intervention; and to press for increased provision of speech and language therapy.

Note: All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal, cross-party groups formed by MPs and Members of the House of Lords who share a common interest in a particular policy area, region or country. APPGs have no official status within Parliament.
