The Stuttering Treatment and Research Trust is the only specialist stuttering centre in New Zealand. We need your support.


Established in 1995, the Stuttering Treatment and Research Trust (START) is the only organisation in New Zealand that specialises in treating people who stutter.

Our qualified team of specialist Speech Language Therapists are all members of the New Zealand Speech Therapy Association (NZSTA) and provide internationally accepted and effective treatment for clients. START’s services include access to a community of support and mentoring for people who stutter and their families, increasing the confidence and communication skills of our clients.

But we need your help.

START’s success is thanks to the generosity of our community of supporters and friends. As a not for profit and registered charity (CC30201), we are always looking to improve our financial stability and independence.

The more money we can raise through donations and sponsorship, the more people we can help.

Help our Kiwi kids access the treatment they need today – donate to START.

I still can't belive our 10 year old ever had a stutter 6 years ago. START is such a brilliant organisation and Janine was so amazing.

Hi Hannah, thank you so much for your generous donation! We'd love to send you a thank you card so please feel free to email us with your full name - but if you'd like to remain private of course that is up to you! Thank you!
