New Corporate Member The British Voice Association introduce their network of support and provision for performers and professional voice users.
The British Voice Association (BVA) is the 'voice for voice' in the UK, an association of multidisciplinary professionals who work to promote the field of voice in its broadest sense. Our remit is the encouragement of a healthy voice, vocal skills and communication in such areas as the performing arts, business and industry, medicine and education.
The British Voice Association recognises the human voice as an essential element of our communication and wellbeing. It is devoted to people with voice problems, ranging from severe pathology and cancer to subtle difficulty with artistic performance, all of whom are entitled to the best care available.
To that end, we are dedicated to supporting, informing and encouraging members of all professions who work with these individuals.
“The British Voice Association provides a unique network of support and provision. Linking world-class professionals working across multiple disciplines, the association strives to provide education, assistance and support to those for whom voice is their passion and/or most valuable tool." Craig Antony Lees, BVA President.
