Information about With Tourette Across Poland

With Tourette Across Poland is an initiative against exclusion of vulnerable groups from the society, organised within Citizens for Democracy programme, financed by NGO grants.


Duration: February 2015 – April 2016



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.

The Association offers support to persons with Tourette Syndrome and their families. We create opportunities for them to meet up and interact. Our objective is also to share the awareness about the nature of Tourette Syndrome and indicate the opportunities for  therapy. 


In order to meet these objectives, the Association has embarked on educational campaign based on spreading the information and publications about TS. The Association collaborates with the specialists and relevant authorities in the fields of education, health and science research.

Tourette Syndrome

Tourette Syndrome is an inherited, neurological condition, its key features are tics, involuntary and uncontrollable sounds and movements.  The tics are usually of a mild nature, however in the more extreme condition they can manifest themselves in involuntary swearing or making obscene or otherwise unacceptable movements or gestures.


The disorder is named after Gilles de la Tourette, the  French neurologist and neuropsychiatrist, , who in 1885, whilst working  at the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris, described 9 cases of this condition.
