Mark is a strong supporter of the organisation, which seeks to help children develop their communication skills, as he benefited from speech therapy when he was young. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

One in six children in Wales have a problem with communication and children with speech, language and communication needs are more likely to be bullied and be labelled as having behavioural difficulties. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Mark added, ‘The fact that up to 88% of unemployed young males have speech, language or communication needs highlights the impact that such a problem can have on an individual’s life if it is not dealt with early on and I support the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists in their work on this issue.’ ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
