Information for business

Information for businesses and other organisations in relation to people who stammer, both as employees and customers.

Employers Stammering Network

An Employers Stammering Network was launched by British Stammering Association in May 2013. This new initiative - 'Unlocking Talent' - will enable employers to receive information, support and advice on how to recruit and support people who stammer. See www.stammering.org/esn

Access / customer service

Making services accessible is my page for businesses, public authorities and other organisations on making adjustments for customers/clients who stammer.

Examples of reasonable adjustments - these are aimed at both employers and people who stammer.

Otherwise, my employment section is primarily aimed at people who stammer, but will hopefully also be useful for employers.
