Action for Stammering Children

Action for Stammering Children aims for a society where children and young people who stammer have the same opportunities and quality of life as their peers. Our goal is to ensure that every child and young person across the UK who stammers has access to effective services and support to help them meet the challenges they face.

As it's the 30th anniversary of the charity we want to reach more children and young people across the UK and this appeal will be a huge step in helping us achieve this.

Our work with The Michael Palin Centre

Phoebe, whose story you hear in the appeal, developed a severe stammer as a child. After therapy and support from the Michael Palin Centre she has been able to take up a place to study Medicine at university. Phoebe came in to BBC Broadcasting house for the appeal recording.

Our Residential Courses

Our Residential Courses

We provide support to other areas across the UK by funding outward bound, week-long residential courses with the Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Excellence Network. The participants and their families reported significant improvements in their child's self-confidence and approach to their stammer as a result of attending the course.
