About Us:

The Northamptonshire Dyslexia Association (NDA) is the only local dyslexia charity providing an essential service for the community.

Since 1984 we have been supporting the needs of anyone with dyslexia and those connected with them; parents, teachers or employers. We aim to raise awareness of the issues and needs of those with dyslexia and the interventions that are possible to enable all dyslexics to participate fully in learning and work.

We receive no funding for the charity, which is run by a small group of passionate volunteers, all specialists in the field of dyslexia. (we claim no expenses) Many of our services are free, such as our confidential helpline, and information advice and guidance services.

The running costs which cover:

  • Our Helpline (line rental and calls)
  • Website costs (Training and administration)
  • Promotion and publicity
  • One event or conference per year (Premises, administration and fee for guest speaker)
  • Insurance and Membership - British Dyslexia Association
  • Banking fees
  • Administration resources

The expenditure for these (and other costs) are fast depeleting our small reserve, and it would be great if we could at least pay expenses to our volunteers.

Although we are a membership organisation, unfortunately our small fee only covers a tiny percentage towards our outgoings.

Dyslexia and the 7 co-occurring hidden impairments impact on 15% of the population, unfortunately the gifts and talents that these individuals have, are often misunderstood and overshadowed by their challenges. 

We need your help in the promotion of a fully inclusive dyslexia-friendly socieity by continuing to offer support to all who need it,  and even expand our services!   Please, please, do join the local lotto and make the NDA your 'good cause' choice.

Thank you for your support and good luck!

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Pamela Tomalin   (Chair-Northamtponshire Dyslexia Association)
