As an organisation made up entirely of home-based staff the TSA has, for a number of years, relied on various and changing PO Boxes for donations and other post. We have found that our reliance on PO Boxes can cause significant problems, for example when staff are ill or leave the organisation. It has also necessitated “double handling” of mail with post being redirected or passed by hand between staff members. We have therefore taken a decision to bring an end to the use of PO Boxes and to provide for a single central address for all TSA mail, including donations.
Our new address is:
Tuberous Sclerosis Association
32-36 Loman Street
In February we signed a low-cost and flexible tenancy agreement with a well-established social enterprise to rent a single desk in shared and fully serviced premises alongside a number of other small charities. As part of our tenancy agreement we will enjoy free use of meeting, board and conference rooms. Importantly, the post-room and franking machine will allow us to collect all TSA mail and deal with it on-site; centrally logging receipt, preparing donations and then banking them the same day locally, scanning and forwarding mail to individuals where personal responses are needed.
As we will be able to phase out our PO Boxes, save on redirects and the cost of booking meeting rooms in London for Board, committee, staff and other meetings we anticipate that we will make a considerable saving on our running costs as a result of taking up this tenancy.
Please note that we will be maintain our Scottish PO Box Address for any mail relating specifically to Scotland and Lynn Shields, the TSC Advisor there.
This address continues to be:
Tuberous Sclerosis Association,
PO Box 8728,
