Having been designed by speech and language therapists, Talking Mats is a great tool for children’s and adult social workers to use to assist those with communication difficulties and we are giving away a digital copy of the resource to one lucky winner!




There are 3 main Talking Mats resources for social workers to use; Consulting Children and Young people, Social Care and what we are offering, Health and Wellbeing, which can be used by both children’s and adult social workers.  

Dr Joan Murphy, Co-ordinator of Talking Mats recalls a conversation she had with an adult social worker in the latest edition of Sanctuary Social Work News who she says:

“Had worked with a client for three years and would only get a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ response, or if she was lucky a few sentences”. When Joan caught up with the practitioner following their use of the Talking Mats products, she was told, “I have found out a wealth of knowledge, and my client is now living a more fulfilled life, doing things that she likes to do and we are working with her on bigger life goals.”

The Health and Wellbeing digital resource includes 13 digital mats with specifically designed symbols. With no limit to the amount of mats that can be created and stored, it’s a great prize kindly donated by Talking Mats (talkingmats.com).

You can either send us an email to giveaway@sanctuarysocialcare.com with the subject heading “Talking Mats giveaway” with your name, postal address, email and phone number. Or, you can fill in the form below. 



*The winner will be randomly selected and the judge’s decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into.
