National Tremor Foundation

The National Tremor Foundation (or NTF as we are known) is an organisation where we aim to provide help, support and advice to all those living with all forms of tremor irrespective of age.

The foundation is a charity dedicated to people with tremors – its mission is to provide advice, support, publish information and promote research.

The NTF was founded by Professor Leslie Findley (UK) and the late Professor William Koller (USA) in the two countries simultaneously in 1992.  Subsequently, in 1994, the NTF became a separate registered charity in its own right (Charity No:  1042013)

Each year the NTF holds an annual conference, subsidised by the NTF providing members and friends with the opportunity of not only meeting and spending some time together but also asking a panel of experts’ questions that help with improving quality of life.

The NTF has developed close links with other UK voluntary organisations including Parkinson’s UK and the Neurological Alliance and also with international organisations including the European Parkinson’s Disease Association (EPDA) and the International Tremor Foundation

Misguided beliefs and a lack of awareness mean that many people with this condition never seek medical care though most would benefit from treatment. The NTF dedicates this site to the thousands of people in the UK whose lives are affected by tremor.
