We are launching a Makaton International Awareness Day, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Makaton Language Programme, which will take place on Sunday 28th August. Get your flags at the ready, bake that cake and grab yourself a picnic as we are having Makaton inspired garden parties around the country to celebrate!
We would love you to take part by flying the Makaton flag with us and hosting your own garden or house party. We have been busy making free resources for you to download, to decorate and give your party some Makaton magic. Including Makaton bunting, cake wraps and flags.
We have chosen the 28th August to celebrate our wonderful Makaton community as it is the Makaton founder Margaret Walker’s birthday. Within the resources there is a very special ‘colour in’ flag postcard where you can write a birthday wish to Margaret Walker.

We also have a range of new items available from the shop, including T-Shirts, wristbands, flags, and button badges .
Take photos of your Makaton party and share on social media using the hashtags #MakatonAwareness #FlagsForMakaton
If you wish to fundraise alongside your party, we’ve created some fundraising ideas to get your imagination flowing as well as a sponsorship form located within the resources area.
