The global coronavirus pandemic is continuing to affect all aspects of daily life, including at the TSA. Our amazing charity, committed to improving the lives of people affected by TSC across the UK, has been assessing the effects of the spread of coronavirus on our immediate priorities and financial security.

The TSA’s Board of Trustees and senior management team have made some tough but important decisions about the charity’s short and long-term goals, to help us get through the coronavirus outbreak. You can read about the changes to our team structure here and here.

How have the TSA’s short-term priorities changed?

The TSA’s 2020 Business Plan has been temporarily put on hold, and the charity will focus on these critical areas:

  • Providing support and information to the TSC community, during this unprecedented time of uncertainty
  • Offering innovative ways for the TSC community to come together, such as through video conferencing and online groups
  • Safeguarding the long-term survival of the charity, as our income from community fundraising and investments fall due to financial pressure from the virus

How you can help

The TSA receives no government funding and is reliant on the generosity of amazing donors.

If you are able to during this period, the best way to support us is to kindly give a regular monthly donation (or increase your current gift if you can afford to do so).

By doing so, you will improve the lives of people affected by TSC by ensuring the TSA can survive the pandemic and plan for the future.
