How we work

The Makaton Charity manages, monitors, and evaluates what we do and decides what we do next against five strategic objectives:

  1. Resources: develop and disseminate the Makaton Language Programme
  2. Training: ensure access to Makaton training
  3. Services: promote the use of Makaton in everyday life
  4. Influence: increase awareness of the benefits of Makaton
  5. Infrastructure: ensure that the Charity is effective and sustainable

All of our activities support our strategic objectives. Every year we review our objectives and activities to ensure that they best meet the needs of people living with learning or communication difficulties.
