Communities & Groups

A diverse group of people around a table looking at the camera and smiling

Find a support or social group or a workplace network and get together with other people who stammer.

Meeting with others who share your experiences could be the best thing you do. See below if there's an in-person or online stammering community you'd like to get involved in.

Some groups focus on peer support and offer the chance to work on your speech or self-confidence. Others arrange casual social meet-ups in cafes or pubs, or go for walks in the countryside. There are also workplace and professional networks where you can get together with people in the same industry. Whatever their focus, they all provide a safe space to connect with others who 'get it'.
