Say Aphasia Request (Portfolio)

Organisation Description

Say Aphasia’s 15 support groups in England and Wales are attended by 200 people
and led by volunteers living with aphasia. The charity helps people with aphasia adapt to life with this condition and regain their independence and confidence. Aphasia does not affect intellect, but it can restrict the person’s ability to talk, read, write, use numbers and follow what is being said. Those living with this condition are frequently isolated from family, friends and society as conversation, relationships and meaningful roles are lost. It is an invisible condition which is severely under-resourced. The charity has close links with NHS speech and language therapists, who are responsible for most referrals, and with the Stroke Association and Aphasia Alliance.

What are they looking for?

The charity is looking for marketing and social media support until we have the funding to hire someone permanently. Say Aphasia would very much appreciate someone to create and schedule marketing content to help increase donations. Someone with experience with telling a clear brand story is advantageous.
