Funding for AAC

Augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) is an important clinical intervention for many people with motor neurone disease (MND).

This information is for health and social care professionals working with people with MND. It provides suggestions for best practice in AAC provision, and where to find more information.

Where do I start?

Where can I seek funding outside of my own organisation or the NHS?

  • charities/third sector organisations (Some employers have charities associated with previous employment, such as the armed forces or civil service)
  • self-funding – especially through consumer products (tablets, laptops)
  • Access to Work funds equipment to keep people in their employment
  • if statutory support has been explored but is not available, or there are delays in accessing suitable equipment, the MND Association may be able to offer financial assistance through our MND Support Grant scheme.
