Our Training Service help make sure your organisation's ways of working are suitable for people who stammer.
Whatever sector your organisation sits in, you're coming into contact with people who stammer. That could be your staff, customers, service users, members, clients, patients or passengers who stammer.
So often systems and ways of working have been set up without any thought of people who stammer. Or, indeed, of people with a whole range of speech differences. From recruitment processes to absence-reporting procedures for staff, to call handlers in customer contact centres and the way meetings are run.
Maybe you're just unsure about how to react when you meet someone who stammers. How do you help? Should you say something? Should you not?
We can help. Together we can ensure stammering is part of your organisation's work around diversity, equality and inclusion.
You can choose the type of support that works best for you. Many of our resources and support are completely free. As a charity, we rely entirely on grants and donations for our work, and we have a suggested donation for some of our services. We offer:
An online consultation to explore and discuss your concerns or questions and provide relevant information and resources. Our consultations are informal, friendly and useful.
