Being affected by TSC can make it harder to make or save money. To help with this, some people in the TSC community are able to get money from the government to help them with bills and living costs. This is called ‘benefits.’
What type of ‘benefits’ are there?
There are lots of different types of benefits. Some are for carers; some are for people with things like TSC; and some are for people who don’t have enough money to pay for their food and houses.
Contact the TSA Support Line to find out if you might be able to receive benefits to help you.
Can I get any help from the TSA?
The TSA has something called the TSA Support Fund Grant. You might be able to apply to the TSA Support Fund Grant to get up to £250 for living costs.
To get this money, you must have TSC or care for someone with TSC, live in the UK and get benefits from the government.
