NETA - Laptop and training

The North East Trust for Aphasia is currently redesigning its web site. A lap top would enable remote alterations to be made to the website as and when it goes live. There would also be a requirement for a Dream Weaver software package and training for those involved as web masters.

    Aphasia is a little known or understood condition, yet it is believed that over 8000 people in the North East have aphasia. Aphasia is most commenly caused by stroke or other brain trauma. According to the Stroke Assoc - over 100,000 people have a stroke each year and about a third of these have some level of aphasia.
    NETA is the only charity in the North East which specifically supports aphasia.
