TS Friendly Scheme

Join our TS Friendly Initiative where we’ll be highlighting and celebrating schools, employers and organisations who are Tourette’s-aware.

The TS Friendly Scheme is a way for organisations to confirm their commitment to developing an environment and culture that enables people of all ages with TS to thrive.

Tourettes Action can provide training and guidance for organisations to help overcome the challenges individuals with TS may face in education, the workplace, and social settings, due to lack of knowledge or misunderstanding of TS.

Through the scheme, TS Friendly organisations will see improvements in the individual’s wellbeing, productivity, and performance, plus an increase in engagement and morale.
