About the British Stammering Association

The British Stammering Association (BSA), established in 1978, is a national registered charity. It is the only UK-wide charity which helps both adults and children who stammer.

The BSA provides information, help and support to all whose lives are affected by stammering.


We can put you in touch with people who stammer and others who are happy to be interviewed. We can usually find someone locally where that is required. Please contact the Media contacts above.

People who stammer can make excellent interviewees. Communication skills are more important than fluency, and of course different people have different degrees of fluency.

Telling people how to contact BSA

NB: Please include our address wherever possible. Some people who stammer, including some who may particularly value what BSA has to offer, are reluctant to use the phone and may not be on the internet.
