Our Impact


Since I became part of the Stop Holding Back community in 2017 my confidence in competitive speaking environments and stressful situations has improved immeasurably and I now consider myself a good speaker. The lessons, mentoring and support network available to People who stutter (PWS) were foundational to this success and will undoubtedly be useful to other PWS lucky enough to find help from this outstanding charity.
