Share your Memories for Fathers Day
Message from Aneeta Prem CEO
‘Volunteer’s Week’ takes place 1-7 June every year. It’s a chance to recognise the fantastic contribution made by all our TNA volunteers.
From those volunteers who man our freephone helpline and e-helpline to all the regional support leaders who have been holding meetings for fellow suffers, as a way for them to connect and meet people suffering from a similar condition, this is the time to showcase their work and show our appreciation.
Thank you to our Medical Advisory Board who give their time and expertise on our National Zooms and provide helpful advice when sought.
Also thank you to TNA’s Board of Trustees.
All of our volunteers are making a real difference, especially at times when those of us who suffer from TN are in need of support, help and friendship.
*QUEEN’S JUBILEE BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND*
At the start of the Queen’s Jubilee Bank Holiday I hope that you all have the opportunity to meet with friends, family and neighbours.
I know that many of you are having your ‘Tea for TNA’ during this period. May I wish you the best of luck and I do hope you all have an enjoyable time. Please do share your photos with us at #T4TNA.
If any of you are feeling isolated and in real need of a chat, help and advice, please do call our freephone number on 08009991899 option 1

About TN and TNA UK
TRIGEMINAL NEURALGIA is an extremely severe unilateral episodic facial pain that tends to come and go unpredictably in sudden shock-like attacks. The pain is normally triggered, for example by light touch, and is described as stabbing, shooting, excruciating or burning. It usually lasts for a few seconds but there can be many bursts of pain in quick succession. There can be slight variations of trigeminal neuralgia which require different treatments.
WE ARE the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association UK (TNA UK). We provide information, support and encouragement to those who suffer this excruciatingly painful condition. Our aim is to raise awareness of TN within the medical community and the general public at large. As a registered charity, TNA UK is entirely dependent on donations and annual membership fees in order to continue its work. We receive no funding whatsoever from central Government or corporate organisations.
