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, practise techniques and get support.

*As we emerge from the lockdown, some groups have started meeting in person again. Some groups are still holding online meetings — 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.
