New STAMMA hire: Comms and Social Media Manager

We are pleased to introduce STAMMA's new Comms and Social Media Manager, Neha Shaji, who joined the team in February.

Neha's experience includes web management and graphic design for publishers and literary organisations including Huza Press, the Devon-based Riptide Journal and Africa Writes. She has also trained as a translator and interpreter, working across German, English and Korean. Neha said, "I am thrilled about working at STAMMA as their services have helped me with a considerable amount of public speaking at university".

Neha is currently pursuing a PhD and works for STAMMA part time.


Our Purpose

We exist to create a world that makes space for stammering. Where it's embraced as just a difference. Where no-one judges your stammer or the way you choose to deal with it. We’ll get there by bringing people together, whether they stammer or not, to propel a movement for change.

We will stand up for and embolden those who stammer, provide support and information, and challenge discrimination wherever we find it. We’ll fight for NHS speech and language therapy services for those want it. No matter how you talk, we're here for you.

Join us and help the public understand that stammering is not a sign of being drunk, dishonest, nervous or weak. It’s simply how some of us talk.
