About Alex TLC organisation 

Alex TLC is a trusted and experienced organisation offering support and information for all those affected by a genetic leukodystrophy. Leukodystrophies are rare, genetic disorders primarily affecting the white matter of the central nervous system (i.e. the brain or spinal cord). The majority of leukodystrophies are degenerative, causing 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.

Like many other small charities, we have grown organically from an informal support group to the recognised voice for adrenoleukodystrophy patients and their families. Our charitable work is supported by our chain of five charity shops across south east London. With scant resources we are always in need of trustworthy and reliable volunteers to assist retail staff.
