We are the British Stammering Association. Our vision is a world where people who stammer can fulfil their potential and enjoy respect and consideration.

Our mission is to support anyone who stammers in the UK and tackle the stigma, ignorance and discrimination that people who stammer face so that they can live their lives in full and with dignity.

We are a membership organisation with a diverse network, united by the experience of stammering and for people who stammer. We celebrate different voices. It is not our place to make judgements about if or how people choose to manage their stammer.  

  • We value collaboration. We work with others to give the greatest voice, best insights, most effective campaigns for people who stammer.
  • We value community. We provide spaces for people to come together to support, learn, celebrate and campaign for change.
  • We value the individual. We listen to personal stories, provide a platform for sharing and respect individual choices. 
  • We value diversity. We seek out and celebrate different voices, perspectives and experiences in respectful debate.
  • We value openness. We are open in our dealings selfless and generous spirited, honest and straightforward, professional but informal. We are unafraid and speak truth to power.
