About the BSA

The British Stammering Association is the only national charity helping both adults and children who stammer. Originally established as a registered charity in 1978, its mission is to offer support to all whose lives are affected by stammering.

From a small organisation, run by volunteers, it has developed into a truly national charity, running several projects and campaigns and employing a small team of permanent of staff, assisted by dedicated volunteers. Its Constitution, adopted in 2001, affirms BSA's core value: to be an association for people who stammer, run by people who stammer.

BSA Scotland, our Scottish branch, has been established since 2004. Its aim is to support and service the individual needs of people in Scotland who stammer. This training resource is available as a CD tailored for schools in Scotland.

Our Vision: 'A World that Understands Stammering'
