Local Groups

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

Local groups are a great way to meet others who stammer, practice techniques and get support.

*Some groups have started meeting in person again. Others are still holding online meetings while and some are doing both— check out our Online Events Calendar.

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.
