Team story

[p]Hi, thanks for visiting our page. We are coordinating the first Swallowing Awareness Day in the UK supported by the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists in collaboration with Speech Pathology Australia.   [/p][p]Many people have swallowing difficulties after a serious incident such as a stroke, or as part of a life limiting disease such as cancer, Parkinson’s Disease or Motor Neurone Disease or just as part of getting older. The speech and language therapist's role is to identify these difficulties and support people to eat and drink safely where this is at all possible.  [/p][p]This day, 11[sup]th[/sup] May 2016, is to raise awareness of this disorder and how support services are here to help. Therapists from around the UK are joining together to undertake this challenge. For 24 hrs all their drinks will be thickened to at least stage 1 consistency, like a syrup. This is to raise awareness that for some people this is how they have their drinks EVERYDAY.[/p][p]Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor us and donations will be quickly processed and passed to our chosen charity, Macmillan Cancer Support. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. We really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.[/p]
