Imagine optimising diversity, equality and inclusion policies for your council services while enabling your colleagues to understand learning and communication needs. Makaton provides a effective cost solution to offer reasonable adjustments within your council, ensuring people supported by your activities receive efficient, effective and accessible services. Makaton transforms lives everyday by providing tools to support people with communication difficulties, giving them the confidence to express themselves independently, reducing frustration and promoting inclusion.

Makaton Training can be delivered face to face or online within flexible hours to fit your busy schedule and work life demands. Improve the quality of your services with newly found professional skills and enhance the lives of your residents, through utilising sign and symbol knowledge to reduce discrimination within your council services.

“Makaton training has been highly requested by Childcare providers, we were lucky enough to secure funding to enable us to fund a small amount of spaces for this training. We contacted The Makaton Charity to see if it was possible to fund two cohorts of training. Alex responded very quickly and worked with us to find suitable dates and times that would be accessible for a variety of Childcare Providers. All resources were received in a timely manner and of extremely good quality. We very much look forward to working with The Makaton Charity in the future.”
