About NALC

The formation of a National Association of Laryngectomee Clubs (NALC) arose out of a meeting on 12 May 1975 at Charing Cross Hospital, London, where a number of laryngectomee patients - patients who have had a laryngectomee - met with the knowledge and support of clubs in Birmingham, Bristol and Nottingham. The proposed, new association would be responsible for looking after the interests of all laryngectomee patients.

Today, NALC works with around 60 clubs nationwide and offers a range of services to laryngectomees and their families and carers. The clubs aim to provide crucial non-medical help and information that can only come from the experience of someone living with a laryngectomy.

The association raises awareness of all issues that affect laryngectomees and those who live and work with them, and also aims to encourage understanding and support from the general public.

NALC also supports a wide range of healthcare professionals in the UK and worldwide and encourages education, collaboration and research.


Your support is needed urgently...

NALC is at a critical stage of our development. 

For over 30 years NALC was supported by Macmillan Cancer Support. However, Macmillan has now ended its support for NALC. 

Now this year, 2020, we are financially independent but much work is needed to generate the funding needed to continue with all aspects of our work.
