Tourettes Action grants

Tourettes Action offer grants to improve the quality of life for people with Tourette Syndrome (TS) living in the UK. We are able to offer these grants thanks to a generous donation by a TA supporter.

We award grants of up to £500 for equipment that supports people with TS in their day-to-day life. Some examples of what we have funded in the past include:

  • Instruments for people whose tics reduce when playing music,
  • Electronic pens to help pupils take notes at school,
  • Beds for people whose tics are so violent that normal beds break.

Please note that we do not provide grants for activities, holidays or to fund treatments. If you are unsure if the item you would like to apply for fits the criteria for eligibility under our scheme, please contact us to discuss.

Applying for a TA grant

To apply for a TA grant please download a grant application form and send the completed form along with all supporting documentation to Tourettes Action Grants, The Meads Business Centre, 19 Kingsmead, Farnborough, Hampshire, GU14 7SR.

Please ensure you complete the application form fully and include all supporting documentation. If your form is not complete it will delay your application. Please note that on receipt of a grant, an individual may not reapply within five years.

If you would prefer to be sent a paper copy of the form or have any enquiries about the grant scheme, please call us on 0300 777 8427 or email us. Large print copies are available on request.

"People with TS can live a perfectly happy and normal life and children do cope with the issues"
