We are pleased to announce that The Prudential have awarded the NTF £1,000, to help with venue hire and travel, for developing support groups in UK.

The Prudential has a reputation for building long-term community partnerships to address local issues key to the interests of the communities.

This funding from The Prudential is important to the NTF as support groups give people the opportunity to learn about their conditions, chat to people with similar problems, compare notes and pass on helpful hints and tips in a welcoming environment. They are not only about supporting one another, but also about having fun and making new friends.

The development of support groups will have an impact on a range of personal and social issues faced by communities as a whole. Tremor does not only affect people who suffer from the disorder by also their families and friends. Support groups play a vital part in educating members of the pubic from educational professionals to health care practitioners.

This success follows on from the award of £4,000 from The Big Lottery Fund last year. We look forward to hearing more about The Prudential and the development of our support groups.
