Action for Stammering Children

We provide specialist help and support to transform lives of children who stammer

Charity Registration No. 801171


On 22 April, I will be attempting to run the London Marathon for the first time. It's going to be tough – and I'm not expecting a fast time. But the thing that will drive me on – and has kept me going through months of gruelling training – is thinking about the two great charities I am running for, both of which I have worked closely with over the last few years: Action for Stammering Children and Whizz Kidz.

You can donate to Action for Stammering Children on this page and this is what your sponsorship money could help to fund: 

·      £100 would provide a one on one therapy session between a child and an expert speech and language therapist

·      £50 would provide one day’s training for a generalist speech & language therapist to enable them to provide stammering therapy to children locally.

·      £25 would help fund ASC’s helpline for anxious parents

Thanks so much for your support.
