National Volunteers’ Week

Dear Volunteers,

Thank you to All the Volunteers

As we celebrate National Volunteers’ Week, I want to extend my thanks to all the incredible volunteers at the Trigeminal Neuralgia Association UK (TNA UK). Many of you are not only dedicated volunteers but also brave individuals living with trigeminal neuralgia (TN) yourselves. Your commitment and resilience are truly inspiring.

Helpline and E-Helpline Volunteers

A special thank you goes to those who tirelessly staff our helplines and e-helplines. You offer crucial support and information to those in need, providing a lifeline to many and ensuring that no one has to face TN alone.

Regional Leaders

Our regional leaders deserve recognition for their outstanding work. You not only run regional meetings but also provide ongoing support to members in your areas. Your dedication to fostering a supportive community is invaluable.

Friendship Line Volunteers

A huge thank you to those who have manned the friendship line. Your compassion and willingness to listen have made a significant impact. In many cases, you have saved lives.

Medical Advisory Board

We also owe a debt of gratitude to our brilliant Medical Advisory Board. Your expertise and guidance are instrumental in our mission. You help us navigate the complexities of TN with confidence and clarity.


Lastly, I want to thank our trustees for their support and dedication. You improve the lives of those with facial pain and trigeminal neuralgia.

Call for Volunteers

Volunteering is at the heart of TNA UK. We are always in need of more passionate individuals to join us. If you are interested in making a difference, please get in touch. We need you to help us continue providing vital support to those affected by TN.
