Alex, The Leukodystrophy Charity (Alex TLC) offers support and information to all those affected by a genetic leukodystrophy.

More about Alex TLC

This trusted and experienced organisation offers support and information for all those affected by a genetic leukodystrophy. Leukodystrophies are genetic disorders primarily affecting the white matter of the central nervous system (ie. the brain or spinal cord). The majority are degenerative and largely untreatable, usually with symptoms such as impaired mobility, vision, speech and hearing, incontinence, inability to swallow and loss of cognitive skills. In some cases, they may cause death.

There are over 90 identified inherited or genetic leukodystrophies, with some so rare they are yet to be named. The rarity of these conditions means affected individuals often experience difficulties accessing adequate needs-led care and services in the local area... And that is where Alex TLC offers vital support. With a wealth of experience and knowledge, ALex TLC helps people through all aspects of living with a leukodystrophy. The charity exists to help the diagnosed, their family and friends, with practical and emotional support as well as developing relationships with local professionals.

Your old car donation through Charity Car to Alex TLC could help produce the information carefully curated to help people learn more about their condition and symptoms, as well as the services and treatments they can access. The charity gives one-to-one support online, by email, phone, or via home visits to ensure everyone can access the help they need to cope with their condition. Alex TLC also runs a Peer Support Network and community events - putting people in contact with others who are in a similar situation, which can be especially helpful for people with a particularly rare leukodystrophy. A larger car donation could even provide a grant to fund care, equipment or therapy not available through statutory services.

As well as practical help and support, the funds raised from your old car could also support the charity's awareness campaigns and research initiatives that help improve best practice in prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of leukodystrophies. Alex TLC works with the NHS, medical specialists, universities and pharmaceutical companies to ensure research and future treatments have the optimal impact for patients.
