Assistive communication community service

Helping to make communication quick, simple and effective

Our assistive communication service (ACS) supports adults and children with complex physical and/or communication disabilities.

The service has been commissioned by NHS England to provide a specialised augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) service in north and south east London. 

As part of this service, we assess adults and chilldren with complex AAC needs.

We provide AAC communication equipment and on-going support and maintenance for those that meet our referral criteria.

We will also provide support and training to local community teams who are working with AAC.
