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.








Our Grand Christmas Draw will be held at NETA on December 22nd.

There are many great prizes, including this fabulous Christmas hamper. Tickets are available from Janet Moss, secretary at NETA from: aphasia@ncl.ac.uk at £5 for a book of 10 tickets.

The Christmas raffle is a major fundraising event, please give us your generous support.



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.

Nicholas Elliott, nephew of Chris, one of our members, has raised a fantastic £13442 in sponsorship for his Cross Channel Swim in September.

This was a huge undertaking involving a massive training schedule over a long period of time, in all weather conditions.

We are delighted that Nicholas will be coming along to NETA on November 24th, to meet us, to talk about his experience and join us in our 10th anniversary celebrations
