National Residential Weekend 2020 - A Weekend of Celebration

Date: 

31/07/2020 - 16:00 to 02/08/2020 - 13:00

Location: 

Portland College, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire NG18 4TJ.

We are looking forward to holding our national residential weekend at Portland College. The 2019 event was our biggest to date with 148 people being involved throughout the weekend, including 37 AAC Users. It was really great to meet so many new families and we had 12 AAC Users experiencing a 1Voice event for the first time.

This year we are really excited to be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the first 1Voice event and we are inviting you to join us for a weekend of celebration. There will be activities for all levels of communication throughout the weekend. Parents' workshops and siblings' activities will run alongside the AAC user workshops.

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 2020 prices are detailed below and remain the same as the previous two years. Prices are heavily subsidised for all attendees and we are delighted to be supported by BBC Children In Need.


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 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 events@1voice.info.


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.

AAC Adult £40,  AAC Child £35,     PAs £ 35,    Siblings £ 35,     All other Adults  £45
