An Important Message

It costs £300 per week to keep the Commtap website maintained and running. Only a very small number of its 4000 regular visitors donate anything towards the costs of its running.

This site helps parents, teachers, care-workers, speech and language therapists and many others to make their support for those with communication difficulties as effective as possible.

Every contribution from you - no matter how big or small - goes to ensure that the Commtap site continues to provide this valuable service.

You can support Commtap from as little as £1 - and it only takes a moment!
