Inclusive Communication Alliance
The Alliance has been established recognising the passion, long term commitment and knowledge of individuals and groups currently working to improve Inclusive Communication in Scotland. The role of the Alliance will make recommendations about the development and creation of an Inclusive Communication Law.

People at higher risk of contracting Covid-19 include high numbers of people who live with a communication disadvantage, including people who are socio-economically disadvantaged, older people and people with long-term conditions.

See “Inclusive communication actions all organisations should take to reduce communication disadvantage now”.
