Melanie Derbyshire

Speakability Representative

Melanie has been representing Speakability (Action for Dysphasic Adults) and people with Aphasia on the BAS Committee since she became Chief Executive in 2008.

Speakability (Action for Dysphasic Adults) is a national charity founded 35 years ago by Diana Law who had Aphasia following a stroke. The charity offers information, support and hope to people with Aphasia, their families and carers. It helps people with Aphasia to develop their own Speakability Self-Help Groups. In April 2015, Speakability joined forces with the Stroke Association. Together they have ambitious plans to ensure more people living with Aphasia receive vital support.
