Employment Support Service

We work with people who stammer, employers and organisations over issues relating to stammering and employment.

Find out how the STAMMA Employment Support Service can help you or your organisation below.

Please note: this service is only open to people based in the UK.

For individuals   

Are you concerned about job hunting and interviews because of your stammer? Are you having issues with stammering at work? Book a consultation with STAMMA's Employment Support Service. We'll discuss your concerns and explore ways we can support you. Where appropriate we can talk with your employer about how stammering impacts you and what they can do to help. 

Email us at employmentsupport@stamma.org, phone the STAMMA helpline on 0808 802 0002 or use our webchat to start the conversation (both open weekdays 10am-12noon and 6-8pm).

For employers & organisations

Forget any outdated misconceptions you may have about people who stammer. It does not mean they can't be effective communicators and it has nothing to do with their intellect. 2% of UK adults report that they stammer, contributing a wealth of talent to organisations — in all professions and at all levels. 

If you are unsure about what people who stammer can bring, or how you can create stammer-friendly environments for staff and customers, we can help you!

Inclusion and Diversity

Our Employment Support Service provides tailored webinars, workshops and other written resources to support your diversity and inclusion programme and ensure people who stammer are represented. 

Employee support

We offer bespoke consultations to help you explore reasonable adjustments for an employee who stammers and the information and support that is out there for them.

Work-based networks

Many professions or workplaces have support networks for staff who stammer. If you're interested in setting up a stammering network in your workplace, we’re happy to help.

Policies and practices

We also provide full HR and customer policy reviews to identify areas which may be disadvantaging staff or customers who stammer, followed by recommendations for how these concerns can be addressed.
