ASC receives Big Lottery Fund Award

“We are thrilled and delighted to receive the Big Lottery Fund Award.

A stammer can have a devastating impact on a child’s confidence and their ability to do all the normal things that other children take for granted.  It can often result in a child being isolated, teased and bullied.  This award will provide incredible support to our work at the Michael Palin Centre for Stammering Children in London.   It will have a huge impact on hundreds of children and young people, ensuring that they are able to access the specialist help and support they need and so changing many lives forever!  

Thank you Big Lottery Fund. “

Patrick Tonks, Chief Executive of ASC
