Local Groups

A group of people posing for the camera in a meeting room.

Groups are a great way to meet others who stammer, practise techniques, get support and socialise.

*Many groups are now meeting online or running as a hybrid — check out our Online Events Calendar to find out which groups are meeting and when.

Some groups are support or self-help groups where you can share your experiences, discuss speech techniques and practise 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.
