The Board of Trustees would very much like to get your views and opinions about what you think are really important to Communication Matters.

We last carried out a survey about Communication Matters in 2008 and a lot has happened in the world of AAC over the past five years. With all the developments surrounding national commissioning of services, we want to make sure we understand your opinions about Communication Matters, what you see as the organisation's key roles and where you think we could improve or develop in future.

We are therefore writing to ask you to contribute by completing a simple online survey by Monday 18 November 2013.

Your contribution will guide the Trustees in developing the strategy and marketing plans for Communication Matters over the coming years, as well as providing us with valuable insight about what is important to you.
