Your donations help people who stutter to enjoy a fulfilling working life
“As an experienced speech and language therapist I have witnessed so many times how bias against people who stutter has eroded their self-belief that they’ll ever get a job. 50 Million Voices is successfully changing this bias. That’s why I donate regularly to support their work”.
Jan Logan, UK
“The support I’ve received from my 50 Million Voices mentor has been a game-changer for me. I’m so much more confident with my stammer at work and I’ve just secured my first job in my dream career.”
“I have nothing but great feedback. It’s so inspiring to be aware of stammerers in my desired line of work, so to have such talented people on board and to be able to communicate with them is fantastic.”

Laying firmer foundations
“The advice, encouragement and support I’ve received from 50 Million Voices has enabled the Ghana Stammering Association to develop an employment focussed strategy for the first time. People who stutter and employers are already benefitting from this”
Elias Apreko –
Co-founder and Executive Director of the Ghana Stammering Association
“It was a fantastic opportunity to meet with the senior disability leader from the International Labour Organisation (ILO) and to discuss ideas for collaborating on stammering in India. This introduction only happened because we are part of 50 Million Voices.”
Shilpa Sagwal – Core team member, The Indian Stammering Association (TISA)
“I was shocked to learn how stammering makes visible and audible internal struggles and comes with a heavy dose of discrimination, whether it's during the interview or a career progression”
“I was left feeling overwhelmed at the bravery of the individual I met. He chose his words very carefully and each one had power that is lost when too many words are used.”
D&I Manager, UK
"It helped me to learn what individuals go through to secure a job, progress in the role and openly talk about their conditions. It was a mind-opening exercise that enable me to explore the ways to support this community and educate people with the ways to be a good ally."

Income and spending
We are registered as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) by the Charity Commission for England and Wales, and our charity number is 1189541.
We spend our income where we believe it has the greatest direct impact for people who stutter.
As you’d expect from a charity whose chair is a Chartered Accountant we keep our costs to a minimum!
All our work is carried out virtually, thus avoiding occupancy costs such as rent, rates and utilities.
And with more funding we’re confident that we can significantly increase our impact further.
