Carer information and support
Many people living with TSC rely on carers to help them every day
Often unpaid and overworked, the tireless work of carers in the TSC community should never be ignored or underestimated.
If you are a carer for someone living with TSC, or know someone who is, it is important to make sure that you also get the information and support that you deserve.
There are many routes to accessing carer support and by doing so you can continue to ensure that those around you get the help that they need.
TSC carer support during extraordinary times
The TSA hosted the virtual session ‘TSC carers support and covid-19’ during the coronavirus outbreak, featuring insights and participation from Carers UK.
Although the session focuses on covid-19, the advice and discussions in the session would be useful during any time of particular strain for carers in the TSC community.
