Fluency Trust

The Fluency Trust

The Fluency Trust is a registered charity, created out of a desire by people who stammer and Speech and Language therapists to provide intensive residential courses for young people who stammer. Our committee consists of adults who stammer and Speech and Language Therapists.

The Fluency Trust has been running intensive courses since 1995 helping young people to overcome the difficulties that stammering can cause. The courses are unique in combining intensive speech therapy with outdoor pursuits and led to the development of the award-winning Swindon Fluency Packs. These have become a popular resource for Speech and Language Therapists.

The combination of challenging activities and intensive therapy is highly effective in developing confidence and the ability to manage stammering positively. We also provide training workshops for professionals and parents.

The Fluency Trust work in partnership with Swindon Borough Council. SBC are responsible for the provision of children's community health services including speech and language therapy. The Fluency Trust fundraise to pay for the residential and activity aspect of the courses that makes them so effective. This model of partnership working between a public service and a charity is good practice and was recognised in the CQC inspection of SBC children’s health services in March 2017. They described the SBC fluency services as ‘outstanding’.
