Celebrate the anniversary of our first year of webchat and take part in 5k May!    

Take part

On 13th May 2020, we launched the world's first webchat service for people who stammer, helping those who find using the phone difficult to get instant support.

By the end of April, we'll have taken over 500 chats, emails and calls in 2021 so far, and over 1,300 in the past year. Webchat, particularly this year, has been high in demand. The positive feedback we've had has been amazing and we can't imagine life without it! 

Webchat user satisfaction statistics

Help us ensure that we can answer every helpline call and webchat from people who need our support. Not only next year, but for the years to come.

Donate £5. Run or walk 5k. Nominate 5 friends to do the same.

This might seem like a small step, but if every one of our Members took part, we'd raise £13,650. If each of their nominees took part, we would raise over £68,000.


Signing up to 5k May couldn't be easier. 

  1. Donate £5, or whatever you can afford, on our JustGiving page
  2. Run, walk, hop, skip or crawl 5k. That’s around 3 miles. 
  3. Take a photo or video at the end of your 5k, share it on social media with the hashtag #Stamma5kMay, and nominate 5 friends to do the same. 

If you donate £5, and your five friends donate £5, and their five friends all donate £5, you could raise £155 to support our helpline, all from a gentle jog and a Twitter post. 

Not only that, but the awareness you raise on social media will have a massive impact in helping to dismantle the stigma that still surrounds stammering today.
