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 NTF was first brought to the UK from the USA in 1992 and in 1994 became a registered charity in its own right (charity number: 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 the Parkinson’s Disease Society 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.

This article discusses the prevalence and symptoms of essential tremor (ET). It is the most common neurological disorder and yet so little is known or written about it.1 It's about eight times more common than Parkinson’s disease2and yet it can be mistaken for it. The subject needs to be discussed and recognised, so people who suffer with ET receive the best quality of care and are less likely to become depressed and socially isolated.
