From the 11th June to the 16th June, UCLU Giving Voice ran a social media campaign celebrating the talents of people who have speech, language and communication needs (SLCN), to encourage people to not see disability before ability. People were encouraged to share any great experiences they may have had with an individual they have met, or a wonderful charity, that celebrates people who have a speech, language or communication need.

Articles, stories and quotes were posted throughout the week and some topics discussed were around acting with SLCN and representation of people with SLCN  in popular culture.

UCLU Giving Voice managed to make 10.2K impressions on twitter during the campaign,as opposed to our 200-300 average impressions per week. We had 361 interactions on twitter and 55 likes on Instagram. We even got retweeted by Lost Voice Guy!

Our most popular posts were quotes from UCL lecturers Steven Bloch and Stefanie Bucher who discussed the importance of communication and how rewarding being a Speech and Language Therapist can be.

Thank you to everyone who engaged in this social media campaign – we hope we’ve highlighted the importance of seeing ability before disability, and celebrating what makes you you!
