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.






Calling All Younger People with Aphasia ... Can You Help Us?

For younger people with aphasia, it’s really hard to find suitable support services.

If you are a young person with Aphasia, or their family, we wish to hear about what you need. You are invited to a consultation session at NETA on Thursday September 14th. Please click here to download details and YOUR INVITATION.
