Partner organisations

We hope that organisations working with people with speech difficulties will support their involvement in the Nuvoic project. We have funding available to reimburse organisations for help to promote the project and identify eligible candidates, and for supporting their enrolment and participation.​ We will work closely with organisations to support these activities, providing materials, training and technical support as required.​

We currently have participants supported by the Cedar Foundation in Northern Ireland, FitzRoy services across the south of England, The Grange at Bookham, Homefield College in Loughborough, Hill House in Sandbach (Leonard Cheshire), National Star in Cheltenham and New Bridge Horizons in Oldham, and the list is growing!

What’s involved for organisations​

We offer support to identify and enrol eligible candidates and assess what equipment they need for testing, and we can provide loan equipment as needed. We offer training and technical support to local teams to get any equipment setup and to support participants throughout their testing or voice sampling. This is primarily through video calls or email but we can also offer visits on request. We will keep in touch with participants and support teams throughout their involvement to hear how things are going, pass any feedback to Voiceitt and offer ongoing technical support.

We work closely with partner organisations to:

  • identify people you support who may benefit from using Voiceitt;
  • present them with information about the project;
  • enrol participants and record their informed consent​;
  • support the technical set-up, including access – we can provide equipment on loan;
  • support participation​;
  • and keep in touch with the project team about participants’ progress and any problems.​

Reimbursement​

We have funding available to reimburse organisations for staff time spent supporting the Nuvoic project – organisations can claim reimbursement based on the number of hours contributed. ​
