Welcome to our website

Welcome to the North East Trust for Aphasia website. NETA is a charity which aims to support people in the North East with aphasia and their families. 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.






NETA 10th Anniversary Celebration

The NETA Support Centre is celebrating ten very successful years. Throughout this time, many people with aphasia and their families, have benefitted from the expert help, support and companionship that NETA provides.

Dr Rose Hilton and Chair, Gordon Doney cut a special cake to mark this happy occasion.


Great North Runners

We are so proud of our amazing Great North Runners, who on September 11th, collectively raised a huge total of £7271 for the NETA Charity. Everyone who ran made an enormous effort and we owe our thanks them and to all their supporters.

Taking part in this very prestigious event helps also to raise awareness of aphasia among the general public.
