About Afasic Cymru
Afasic Cymru supporting parents
Afasic is the UK charity established in 1968 as a parent led organisation representing children and young people with specific language impairment (SLI) and speech, language and communication needs (SLCN) by raising awareness of this often hidden disability thus working for their inclusion in society and supporting their parents and carers.
Help us to fundraise
In the current economic climate we are constantly seeking funding sources to continue our work in Wales.
If your employer is looking to sponsor a charity of the month or year, please get in touch. All donations are gratefully received and used in Wales.
Afasic Cymru is not a service provider; therefore we can offer balanced impartial information. We provide information and training for parents – and professionals – and produce a range of publications. We work in partnership with local and national government, professional and statutory bodies and other voluntary organisations. Members meet in local groups in both North and South Wales.
Established for 15 years
Afasic Cymru was established in Wales in 2002 in response to devolution and are currently funded by The Big Lottery, Conwy Children & Young People’s Partnership, Flintshire County Council and The Morgan Foundation. We are working from two regions – based in Cardiff and St Asaph.
