Who I CAN are, how they help, and why they're TMAC's first ever Charity of the Year
In the UK alone roughly 1.5million children struggle to speak and understand what people are saying to them, with children in deprived areas being the most at risk. This leads to further, and sometimes more serious, issues later in life – such as reduced employment opportunities and social isolation.
Without the proper resources difficulties speaking and understanding is not something that children simply grow out of. I CAN provides vital information and assistance that can help such children reach their full potential despite these difficulties.
With creating better conversations being a key focus in what we do here at The Modular Analytics Company, there is great synergy with a charity that has improving communication at their core.
Ailsa Featherstone-Clark, Business Manager at TMAC, said “We are so excited to be supporting I CAN as TMAC’s first ever Charity of the Year. Everything we do revolves around improving conversations and a big part of that is identifying and protecting vulnerable customers, who often have difficulties talking and understanding.”
“The work that I CAN does means less children who struggle to speak and understand language will go on to become vulnerable adults in the future, and we couldn’t be happier to have them as our chosen charity.”
Jane Harris, Chief Executive at I CAN said “We're delighted to be teaming up with TMAC. Throughout the UK, children’s education has been severely disrupted by Covid and we are now beginning to see the true impact this has had on their ability to speak and understand words.
Our new partnership with TMAC means that together we can be a catalyst for change and help improve the mental health, education and futures of thousands of children and young people throughout the UK.”
Over the course of the coming year TMAC plan to host and participate in a variety of activities to help raise money for I CAN and their crucial work. This will include internal fundraising as well as events that people external to the company can donate to, such as sponsored marathons and virtual challenges.
