Michael Palin Centre for Stammering

We help children, young people and adults who stammer through individually-tailored therapy delivered by highly experienced specialists. We are supported by Whittington Health NHS Trust, Action for Stammering Children and the Stuttering Foundation.

MPC and the 2.6 Challenge

On Sunday 26 April, the MPC team, joined by a number of staff from the past, completed the 2.6 Challenge to help raise funds for Action for Stammering Children (ASC). Watch our video or read more about the event and how to help sponsor them here. Or go straight to our JustGiving page to support our 2.6 fundraising.


COVID-19: Due to the coronavirus outbreak the Michael Palin Centre is delivering a telehealth service with therapists working from their homes. You can make referrals as usual, arrange and attend assessments and therapy or call our Helpline on 020 3316 8100.  We are taking bookings for training workshops and delivering those using Zoom.

Day 3 “It’s not just about the stammer”
Stammering therapy is about so much more than the stammer, it’s also about overall communication skills. Between 70-93% of all our communication is nonverbal, so tapping into communication skills in therapy is key! #ISAD2021

Half way through our #PracticeInterview event and, with over 100 participants, it’s wonderful to be hearing plenty of heartwarming feedback from #interviewees & #interviewers. Thanks for sharing! #OKToStutter #ISAD2021 #Allies #RealisingPotential #Interviews
