Helen has been a regular and loyal volunteer since our first winter weekend in 2000. She is a speech and language therapist and has been running a local group for years. We are delighted that her well established and active group has decided to become a part of 1Voice.
Events and Volunteers
Megan has been attending 1Voice weekends since 2008. She has been a personal assistant for a teenager who uses AAC and is now a Speech and Language Therapist working with children with disabilities.
Janet has been involved with 1 Voice since 2001. She is the mother of a young adult AAC user, who benefitted hugely from 1 Voice family and teenager events as she grew up and is now a 1 Voice role model. Janet's professional background is in language teaching. She became a 1 Voice trustee and director in 2012. She also helped to launch 1 Voice North East in 2012, and is now the branch officer.
Angie has been attending events with her family on a regular basis since the early days of 1Voice and is now a Trustee and Director at 1Voice.
Helen joined the Board/Executive Committee on 16 November 2013.
She has been a long standing member of 1Voice, became a Role Model in 2008 and has been a member of the 1Voice West Midlands Committee since 2010. Her contributions have included working with young people and families, giving presentations about living independently and reassuring families about what will be possible for their children to achieve in the future. Helen has also helped organise local events. All her experiences she has had with her own disability and communication problems she brings are valuable to the Board of Trustees.
I’ve lived and breathed AAC most of my life, professionally for the past 15 years. I took a break from being a trustee of 1 Voice -Communicating Together 2008 in order to complete my degree and qualify as an Occupational Therapist. I did my degree part time and through the course had my two wonderful children. I am delighted to be back as a trustee of 1 Voice and excited about the future of the charity.
Julie has been involved with charities in USA and UK for over 20 years, most often acting as Treasurer in all of them.

In 2012 she stepped down from the board and took on the role of Company Secretary and administers all general business of the charity on behalf of the Board.
