We are Alex,
The Leukodystrophy Charity (Alex TLC)
Alex TLC is a trusted and experienced organisation offering support and information for all those affected by leukodystrophy. Formerly ALD Life, an internationally recognised centre of excellence for people affected by adrenoleukodystrophy and adrenomyeloneuropathy, the charity was established in 2004.
Due to popular demand, we extended our services to support all leukodystrophies in 2019 and became Alex, The Leukodystrophy Charity.
Living with a leukodystrophy can be challenging, but help is available.
Find out how our services can help you cope.
Our award-winning charity shop business helps raise vital funds and awareness, as well as providing volunteering opportunities and jobs for local people.
You can access peer support in our online community. We have our own Facebook Group called Alex TLC Community. It is a space for individuals affected by leukodystrophy and their family members, friends, and carers to have conversations. We hope that by having our own dedicated group on Facebook, it will ensure more of our community are able to be involved in conversations and discussions. The group is private, as a charity we will moderate who joins and we have set certain rules, so members know what to expect in the group.

Have you heard of our Peer Support Programme? We link individuals and families affected by leukodystrophies so you can share experiences and gain mutual support. The way we do this is by putting families in contact with each other who have the same condition or with similar symptoms which can be especially helpful in the case of the very rare or unnamed leukodystrophies.
Are you a professional seeking support for a patient or client with leukodystrophy? We’re here to help.
