Cued Speech UK has set sail at The Boatshed
Friends, families and supporters gathered at the new Cued Speech UK headquarters this week to celebrate our move to spacious new offices.
Amongst the laughs and smiles, it was a great opportunity to thank everyone who has helped our charity’s recent growth. We now have the base we need to support delivery of our new services and our recent expansion of Cued Speech into new areas.
Aptly named, ‘The Boatshed’ is a strikingly contemporary building ‘moored’ on the banks of the River Dart in the charming market town of Totnes in Devon; a modern building that now reflects our charity’s ambitions. Such a peaceful location in Devon provides the perfect setting for our meetings, training workshops and service innovations. Visiting families with deaf children and hearing professionals will find it easy to get to us now either by road or rail and our modernised systems will enable us to enhance our communications nationwide.
Our move to a new base is an opportunity for us to reaffirm our commitment to families with deaf children, as the only charity based in the UK providing family support, training and information to help make speech visible with Cued Speech; the foundation for all other communication interventions for deaf babies, children and adults. Strengthened by new appointments, our staff are excited and even more determined to ensure that families with deaf children are fully informed and have an opportunity to immerse their child in visible language from birth.
Executive director Henrietta Ireland said “I’m really excited to be part of such a vibrant organisation and I’m blessed to have such a fantastic team”
We want to thank everyone who helped celebrate with us and we are looking forward to meeting up again, with even more people, at our next event!
