Tourettes Lifelong Care (TLC)
TLC - Tourettes Lifelong Care, is a support network which is part of Tourettes Action and was set up by five committed and passionate people to give moral support and vital information to individuals affected by Tourette Syndrome and the many co-morbidities that the condition attracts
It is also our aim in the near future to raise enough funds to provide our fellow Touretters with somewhere safe and relaxing, in a non-judgemental environment, to go on holiday or to have a short break in either a large caravan or cottage/holiday home.
Stuart Colquhoun(Chopper), Jo Colquhoun, Paul Stevenson, Dorothy Achenbach and John Davidson all of whom have lived with Tourettes for many years want to be able to inform, inspire and change peoples attitudes towards this extremely mis-understood and complex disorder.
Wherever you live in the World, whatever your nationality and whatever your ethnic origin you can be assured that if we can help by just listening or giving you some words of wisdom or putting you in touch with the main charities within the UK for more professional help and advice then we will.
We strongly believe that:
Tourette Syndrome has NO BOUNDARIES
So our group should have NO BOUNDARIES
Whatever issues you are faced with in your journey before or after diagnosis, or even at the onset of symptoms then you can get in touch, or come to one of our support group gatherings and you will be made to feel that you aren’t alone and we are here to help each other.
At TLC we have over 25 yrs experience of living with Tourette Syndrome and we believe that this is what enables us to provide advice and support, because living with our condition, whether it be the highs or the lows, makes us the experts.
GET IN TOUCH AND TOGETHER WE CAN LEAVE THE IGNORANCE BEHIND.
