National Residential Weekend 2018


27/07/2018 - 16:00 to 29/07/2018 - 14:00


Treloars College, Holybourne, Alton, Hampshire GU34 4GL.

UPDATE 14 JUNE 2018 - We have had a great response and the residential places are now filled. Registration on the website is now closed but if you are still interested in attending as a day delegate then please get in touch with Jo at The deadline for booking your place is 1 July 2018. Anyone interested in a residential place should contact Jo and they will be placed on a waiting list in case of any cancellations.

Our 2018 National Residential Weekend will take place at Treloar’s College in Hampshire. This is a new venue for us and we are confident that the accommodation and facilities on offer will meet our needs. 

In 2020 1Voice will celebrate the 20th Anniversary of its first national residential weekend event and over the next three years leading up to the Anniversary there will be a programme of creative activities to celebrate this milestone. This year the theme is storytelling. There will be activities for all levels of communication throughout the weekend.

The event is open to residential stays as well as day delegates. As always we welcome new AAC users and their supporters as well as familiar faces. Our national weekend events cater for all ages and all members of the family, as well as assistants, speech and language therapists and other interested professionals.

The 2018 prices are detailed below.

In previous years, 1Voice has heavily subsidised the cost of places from our reserves to make the event more affordable to all. The estimated budgeted cost for the entire weekend is over £250 per person. This includes the cost of accommodation, meals, room hire and activities as well as the administrative costs in organising the event. Unfortunately, 1Voice does not have sufficient reserves to cover this year’s event but it is currently working hard to secure funding for the event. Taking everything into account, the trustees have taken the decision to slightly increase the prices for this year’s event to help meet the overall costs, although there has been no increase to the cost for personal assistants and siblings. In the event survey that was issued to members, there was wide support for increasing the cost.

The trustees are keen to ensure that no child is excluded from the event due to cost alone and there is a small number of more heavily subsidised places available, on a first come first served basis, for new families who otherwise would not be able to attend. Further information can be found in our Funding Policy which is attached at the bottom or alternatively contact Jo at

Whole weekend (Fri-Sun):

AAC Adult £ 100,  AAC Child £75,    PAs £ 75,  Siblings £75,   All other Adults £150

Please note children under the age of 5 are free and where a parent is acting as a PA for the weekend, the PA rate is payable. A parent is considered to be acting as a PA where they are supporting their child in the activities rather than attending the parents’ workshops which will run alongside the AAC user activities.

Saturday (9:30am - late evening- inc. lunch and dinner)

AAC Adult £35,  AAC Child £20,     PAs £ 25,    Siblings £ 20,     All other Adults  £55

Sunday (9:30am - 2pm inc. lunch)

AAC Adult £ 15,  AAC Child £10,   PAs £ 15,   Siblings £ 10.00,  All other Adults  £30

DEPOSIT.  On completion of the online registration, you will be required to pay a £25 deposit (by cheque or online banking). Once received, this will secure your registration and you will be contacted by Jo to continue the process/be issued an invoice for the remaining balance.  A deposit of £25 is required per group booking and not per individual.

Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis and some places will be reserved for families new to 1Voice.


At the beginning of the registration you will need to state how many places you want to reserve (e.g. 4), complete the initial information on the booking name/contact details, then proceed to add first person, and then ADD ANOTHER x 3 so that we have all the details of all the participants.  If you do not have name for PA, then use AAC user's last name and PA1 for first name, PA2 for second one, etc.

Please register for the event using the link below.


1Voice relies on volunteers to make its events a success. If you are interested in volunteering for this event or would like to find out more information please contact Jo at


The trustees are working hard to ensure that sufficient funding is secured to cover the full cost of the weekend event. However, if sufficient funding is not secured then the event will have to be cancelled. In the unfortunate event of cancellation of the event all monies paid to date will be returned in full. A final decision will be made at the end of June 2018.
