Max says, "The group's emphasis is on exploring different ways of dealing with stuttering, and finding what works best for you. Group activities include play reading, discussion groups, guest speakers (members are also encouraged to host discussion groups based on their own experiences) and table topics. We take turns in discussion groups, which ensures equal participation.

You are welcome to attend in an observational capacity as many times as you like, and there is no pressure to take part in activities you might not be ready for.

We also run extra-curricular activities, such as karaoke and evenings out. We organised the 2016 BSA Conference in September 2016 at the University of Manchester.

Email us or contact through Facebook or Twitter (see above) to get the meeting room details and time of the next meeting."
