You can help us!

We are not funded by the NHS or the government. The vast majority of what  we spend to support people affected by aphasia comes from member donations and charitable project grants.

We don’t charge our members for support or meetings. We never want lack of money to get in the way of people’s recovery. We suggest a donation of £6 per person per meeting or £10 per couple IF you feel you can afford it. This works out at about £250 per year, which might be an easier way to pay for your support.

We also offer training to companies and educational establishments, we adapt written materials to be communication friendly, easy-to-read books on accessible local walks and a very stylish line of Speakeasy branded aprons.

To keep innovating in our support of people with aphasia we hustle for every penny.

If you can help, if you’re looking for a good cause for your sponsored board game marathon or baked bean bath, Speakeasy needs you. What else would you be doing anyway?

We always need motivated and energetic volunteers, so if you’re passionate about communication we have exciting opportunities to make a difference.

If all you’ve got is a bundle of fivers burning a hole in your pocket, we won’t mind either. In the current climate our funds are more precious and under threat than ever.


Thank you to all our generous patrons. We are sincerely grateful to you all.
