We are a charitable organisation providing information and support to people who stammer in Ireland. Stuttering, as it is also known, affects people of all ages and from all backgrounds. Parents, partners, friends and family can also be affected by stammering. Please take some time to explore our site. Feel free to contact us if you would like further information on our activities or just for a chat.
