Welcome to the North East Trust for Aphasia (NETA) website. NETA is a charity which aims to support people with aphasia and their families in the North East. NETA does this by funding the NETA Aphasia Support Centre, which offers long term support to people with aphasia, offering opportunities to take part in a variety of groups.
NETA also aims to raise awareness of aphasia in the general public as too few people understand what aphasia means.
