The Charity is saddened by the challenges and prejudice still faced by Black members of the community. As an organisation we stand together with the victims of marginalisation and repression because of their race, and with those who seek change. At Makaton we value equality and inclusion, and Makaton is a language programme for everyone. As a Charity we are striving to expand accessibility to help everybody communicate effectively from all backgrounds.
We are committed to developing an enhanced cultural mix of support materials and where appropriate widen our language programme to reflect diversity. The recent events have made The Makaton Charity look at our own responsibilities, and we hope to meet the highest expectations of change and inclusion within our communication system.
We would like to show you some signs to help you support the #BlackLivesMatter movement:
