Local groups are a great way to meet others who stammer.
Due to the coronavirus, groups aren't physically meeting at the moment, but several are holding virtual groups online. Check out our online meetings calendar to join a virtual group meeting.
Some groups are support or self-help groups where you can share your experiences, hear advice from others, discuss speech techniques and practise different speaking situations. These type of groups provide a space where you can build your confidence in a safe, understanding environment. Other groups are more social in style and arrange meet ups in pubs, coffee shops or restaurants.
