Outlook virtual meeting
18 April 2020, 1pm – 3:30pm
Are you an adult mildly affected by TSC? Outlook meetings are an opportunity to make new and meet old friends, share experiences about TSC and attend interesting workshops and talks.
All adults mildly affected by TSC will receive a warm welcome at Outlook, no matter where you are from in the UK or whether it is your first time at Outlook or you come every year.
Social distancing and self-isolation wasn’t a barrier to the Outlook community coming together in 2020, with the event being hosted virtually for the first time!

The meeting started with an update on the new TSA support line. Attendees discussed what the support line is and how it can be accessed.
The session also included a special meet and greet from Anna and Mega, the TSA’s new support line advisers, who talked about their professional background is support services and their passions for helping the TSC community.
