This month, the diversity and inclusion team is focused on raising the awareness of stammering to support managers and staff.
The aim of the awareness month is to promote an inclusive workplace and address the stigma and misconceptions about stammering. To achieve this, NHS Employers has published a webpage with key facts, figures and resources for organisations to use. Two new blogs from staff who have a stammer will also be released throughout the month - the first one will be live on the 4 April.
Organisations are being encouraged to take this opportunity to raise the awareness of issues that exist within their workplace to help others to understand stammering and help to change attitudes.
