Our activities & services
Stamma strives to provide high-quality information, signposting and support. On this website we aim to provide unbiased information about a variety of support services, therapies, interventions and tools to help people who stammer find the support they want.
We aim to be neutral but may feature articles written by people who have first-hand experience of a therapy, intervention or technique. In such cases we aim to make it clear that the article is written from a personal point of view rather than the official stance of the charity. Please let us know if you feel that at any point this is not clear.
Stamma is registered with the Fundraising Regulator. We fundraise responsibly but if you don’t think we’re meeting these high standards, let us know. If we have not addressed your complaint to your satisfaction you can contact the Fundraising Regulator here. We will work closely with the Fundraising Regulator to resolve any complaints that are raised with them.
Social media & Facebook group
Stamma operates a variety of social channels such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and moderates a private Facebook group. Not all of the information posted in the Facebook group is verified by Stamma and much of the posts are individual’s personal opinions. Visitors to the group should use their own discretion. If you feel a post within the group is inappropriate, you can flag it for moderator review using Facebook’s own content tools. If it's about any of our other social media channels, let us know.
Conference, AGM & Elections
Our members sit at the heart of our organisation; they help elect Trustees to the General Committee and take an active part in supporting and promoting Stamma. We are committed to ensuring that members are supported in expressing their views during elections, at Conference and at our AGM. If something goes wrong, do tell us so that we can improve.
Helpline and upcoming Web Chat
On our Helpline and upcoming Web Chat service, which we aim to launch later this year, we strive to provide high-quality and unbiased information, signposting and support. Let us know if you aren't happy with your experience.
