What's on at T.I.C.

We offer one to one meetings at the hub or when needed home visits, to talk about any concerns and discuss how to move forward with diagnosis and to highlight what support we are able to offer depending on your needs.

We work closely with other organisations and individuals to enable us to offer opportunities for those within our group to access activities that are designed to meet our charity objectives. These activities will be designed to address issues such as isolation, confidence, behaviour management and stress and anxiety.

when possible TIC provides items to support individuals to self-manage symptoms, we also aim to deliver workshops that will give the tools needed to self-manage symptoms moving forwards.

Doncaster group is a smaller space, once used as a library. It is bright and colourful with areas coming off one large room and has a lovely outdoor space.
