June Survey: One Simple Question

This month, we are launching a survey with one simple question; how can we help more people who stutter in Australia?  

Please keep in mind that we are a volunteer based organisation and while I cannot commit to all of the items submitted to be actioned, I will review the submissions with our National Council and Advisory Board.

The survey will be open until the end of the month.
