We support children to talk and understand words


Over 1.4 million children across the UK start school with a communication difficulty and are likely to struggle with talking, understanding, learning and making friends.

Those that know me, know that I have my own princess in the form of Kya-Onawa. Unfortunately in her short life things have not always been plain sailing, Kya-Onawa is a strong but shy little girl who is always smiling and most of the time sucking her thumb. Recently she has been diagnosed with a severe speech disorder and hence the link to ICAN.

I am an established runner, but in order to set myself a new challenge that I am hoping people can support, I have decided to attempt to run at least the distance of a half marathon (13.1 miles) for each day of Lent, from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, if achieved this will be a minimum of 47 Half Marathons, a distance of 615+ miles, in just 47 days!

I CAN is a UK charity supporting children so that they have the communication skills they need. Its mission is that no child should be left out or left behind because of a difficulty speaking or understanding. You can support that mission today!
