1Voice relies entirely on non-government grants and donations. The funds raised help us to put on events including the National Residential Weekend, to support our role models and volunteers and to continue to expand our branch network. Our fundraising is increasingly important to ensure that we can continue to bring AAC users and their family, friends and supporters whenever possible. We are grateful to all those who choose to support us.
