The main aim of the project is to prevent exclusion of people with TS and their relatives, who are discriminated and experience difficulties as a result of the disorder. The project is based on the principle that the community work (such as self-help and counselling), raising awareness in the society, professional training sessions for volunteers and experts (including teachers and doctors) will lower the risk of exclusion.
The activities will be carried out acrossPoland. The participants include people with TS, their families and those who come across TS at the workplace or in the community. The project will be implemented across the whole country, in both urban and rural areas in Partnership with many Polish organisations and one fromNorway.
Trained volunteers will work locally, giving talks, organising self-help and team building workshops aiming to improve a quality of life for people with TS and enable them to get engaged within the society.
