Community speech and language therapy service

We provide speech and language therapy services to children and young people in Lambeth and Southwark.

Watch our specially created film about what to expect from a speech and language therapy session and why it's so important to attend.


Our team of speech and language therapists and assistants offer specialist advice, assessment and help for children and young people (0-19 years) who have difficulties with any aspect of their communication, including:

  • speech sounds
  • talking
  • attention and listening
  • understanding
  • interacting.

We also work with babies and children who have eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties.

We always work with the people who spend the most time with the child. This may include parents, carers, family members, school staff and nursery staff.

Our team works closely with health visitors, schools, local authority and voluntary sector partners.

What to do if you are concerned

If you would like further advice, you can see a speech and language therapist to discuss your child at one of our Chattertime sessions or come along to a monthly drop-in session. These sessions are free and open to all children under five in Lambeth and Southwark.

Find out more about our free sessions.
