We are delighted to announce that The Makaton Charity will be working in partnership with Dimensions to provide essential Makaton training and support to their staff

Dimensions provide evidence-based, outcomes-focused support for people with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs. They are one of the largest not-for-profit support providers in the UK and currently support around 3,500 people and their families throughout England and Wales, with help from 7,000 members of staff.

Simon Gosney, Head of Learning and Development at Dimensions, said “It is hard to imagine living without the ability to communicate with those around you. Many of the people we support do not use speech to communicate and for some of those, Makaton is an indispensable fact of life. We’re thrilled to be now able to train many more colleagues to be able to supplement words with signs and so create better relationships with the people we support and help them maintain and develop connections with others”.

We look forward to collaborating with Dimensions to upskill staff and raise the awareness of Makaton, to ensure that everyone living with learning or communication difficulties has the tools and resources they need to understand and be understood.
