Why join TNA UK?

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. We are therefore grateful for any donation that you can add to your membership fee.

Membership of the Association

Please note that your membership will last for 12 months from whatever date you join the Association.  Renewal reminders are sent out via email prior to your membership expiration and you are then able to renew online.

Simpler renewals: where you have used a payment method which supports automatic renewals, if that payment method is still on file with us and if you haven’t switched off automatic renewals, your membership will renew automatically.  View your subscriptions page to check.

The benefits:

  • Free Personalised Alert Card*
  • Advice (health, benefits and guidance)
  • Up-to-date medical information (medications & alternative therapies, surgery, preparing for consultations, decision making tools and much more!)
  • Join our TNA UK forum and chat with other members
  • Quarterly TNA UK newsletters
  • Exclusive TNA UK publications
  • Read other patients’ personal stories & experiences
  • Information on Local Support Groups
  • Informative and helpful articles, conference footage and videos
  • Up-to-date research information
  • Volunteering Opportunities

If you decide you do not wish to join but have derived benefit from the information on this website, please consider making a donation to support others.

*Members all receive a membership/Alert card which can be useful to show if you have a TN pain attack among strangers, or those who don’t understand TN. Not only will it reassure them that it’s not a medical emergency (and stop the well-intentioned ringing for medical assistance) but also let them know you require only some understanding and a quiet place for a while.
