Practical support for day-to-day living with artificial nutrition at home

We are an independent, not-for-profit membership charity, providing support and understanding to those adapting to life on home artificial nutrition. Our governing trustees, committee and PINNT Ambassadors are all volunteers.

There are three main activities within PINNT:

- Patient support & advocacy: Our aim is to offer support, empathy and contact to patients who require artificial nutrition at home: enteral, parenteral and oral nutritional supplements. To represent members in relevant forms to convey messages and information as necessary.

- Education:  Showcasing life on HAN from the patients/carers/family perspective. Working to use this information to enhance services, thoughts and perceptions.

- Information resource:  Ability to work with professional bodies, manufacturers, policy makers, service providers to give insight to enhance and develop services, products and information.

As a membership community we also form a united voice for patients on a European and International level and take pride in our collaborations with NICE and the NHS and further afield.

We offer categories of membership, free to patients (full member) and associates members. We also welcome donations and corporate membership applications.
