Lights, Camera, Campaign! 

Ele Buckley, RCSLT’s Campaign Manager chose this photo as her favourite. Ele said “For me this photo sums up what Giving Voice is about - SLTs from around the country coming together to show that speech and language therapy transforms lives!”

Your campaigning efforts for Giving Voice have taken many different forms over the past year, with your unique events and campaigning activities showing the creativity, imagination and passion of the profession.

Sharing news about successful events and encounters with decision makers has always been key to the Giving Voice campaign. We are always looking for new ways to spread the campaign messages further. The 2013 photography encourages this!

We are inviting members of RCSLT to enter photographs of their Giving Voice events – and the twelve best images will be included in a 2014 calendar. This calendar will be the perfect gift for politicians and other key stakeholders who need to see the campaign in action and be reminded every day of the year that SLT transforms lives.

Don’t wait! Start collecting photographs at your events now. The winning images will be displayed at the RCSLT AGM in October before going on display at the college’s recently refurbished London office.

We want to see photographs that capture the range of of imaginative events you’ve put on - send us photos of your Giving Voice tea parties, information stands and politician meetings. All could have a chance of making it into the calendar.

Derek Munn, RCSLT’s Director of Policy and Public Affairs chose this picture as his favourite from the campaign so far. Derek said “This picture shows how powerful SLT can be using a very simple image!
