The National Association of Laryngectomee Clubs (NALC) is a national, non-profit organization in the United Kingdom dedicated to providing information, support, and resources to individuals who have undergone surgical removal (laryngectomy) of all or a part of the voice box (larynx) as treatment for laryngeal cancer. The association, which was established in 1976, is committed to offering assistance to clubs and groups of patients across the United Kingdom. Its programs and services include visiting patients and their families before and after surgery; providing advice and support concerning difficulties associated with laryngectomies, such as learning new ways of communicating; and offering a problem-solving and help service for affected individuals, family members and healthcare professionals. The association is also committed to increasing professional awareness concerning laryngectomies and the needs of individuals who undergo such procedures. To help fulfill this goal, association members regularly participate in lectures at nursing schools and demonstrate speech aids.
