    Hi Simon @Siblade1 and a warm welcome to the community:

    "Definition of disability under the Equality Act 2010. You're disabled under the Equality Act 2010 if you have a physical or mental impairment that has a 'substantial' and 'long-term' negative effect on your ability to do normal daily activities."

    You will probably find it useful to have a look at the link here to stammeringlaw.org.uk , which clears up the definition in relation to stammering.
    Hope that helps. Don't hesitate to be in touch with any more information or questions. We're here to help.
    Warmest best wishes,
    @JennysDad

    Hello Simon, @Siblade1 I'm not qualified to answer your question properly, but if you have a look at this link it might provide the kind of information you need. It is a page belonging to the British Stammering Association and you might want to look at joining them. 
    Hope this proves to be of help,
    Very best to you,
    @JennysDad
