Drop-in sessions for children under five

Coronavirus (COVID-19) update – cancellation of Chattertimes and drop-ins

Due to the ongoing coronavirus situation, and following current guidance from NHS England, we have cancelled all face to face Chattertimes and drop-in sessions. We are regularly reviewing the situation with the safety of our families and staff being our top priority.

If you are worried about your child’s communication skills and your child is not known to our service, please email gst-tr.contactslt@nhs.net stating your child’s name and date of birth, and asking for a virtual drop-in appointment with a speech and language therapist. You will be given information about how to access our virtual drop-in sessions.

Please keep checking community speech and language therapy Facebook page and this website for other advice and activities.

Please check our latest information on coronavirus.

Our community speech and language therapy team runs a number of different support and advice sessions for families in Lambeth and Southwark.

Questions about your child's speech or language development? Come along to one of our monthly drop-in sessions for children under five, for free advice from a speech and language therapist .
