A short summary of our project

We are aiming to raise £600 towards our society trip to Body Worlds Exhibition. We are asking SLT society members to pay £5 towards the cost of their ticket to Body Worlds. By paying £5, SLT society members will receive the remaining ticket cost funded for them (total cost of £15).

There are only 50 tickets available for SLT society members - so it will be a first come, first serve basis. Payments must be made by 23rd February. 

This ticket will be valid for Saturday 16th March only.

Society members will be expected to fund their own travel to Body Worlds.

Any non-members who donate will be required to pay the rest of the body worlds ticket cost (£20 total). 

By helping us get to body worlds we will develop our anatomy and physiology skills, this will allow us to become better Speech and Language therapists. Hopefully when we are qualified it will allow us to perform excellent work which you or someone you love might need in the future.Though we hope that you don't need to see a speech therapist!

Who are we?

We are the Speech and Language Therapy Society and our main aims are to raise awareness of communication difficulties and swallowing problems for those people who don't have a way to communicate. Throughout the year we help our local community, raise awareness, fund raise for local charities and provide guest speakers to better our clinical and professional selves. As a society and the profession of speech and language therapists, we need to learn and understand the human anatomy. This will help us to provide a correct diagnosis and treatment for people with neurological and physical disabilities. As such when we qualify we will be able to support many people with swallowing difficulties to have a better quality of life. 

our story

The Body Worlds Exhibition travels world wide to various cities to show those interested in the human body what actually goes on underneath the skin. It is an extremely unique technique to view and one of a kind experience for us as a society. When teaching the anatomy of the human body there is no better way to understand than by looking at it!  By attending the exhibition we will learn more and as such become better speech and language therapists. Check out the exhibition:

 Where will the money go?

  • All money raised will contribute towards the cost of a ticket to Body Worlds
  • We will update you on our progress weekly!
  • A ticket per person when attending in a group of 10+: £20
  • For 50 people to attend it would cost £1000
