Brain Tumour Support is the only UK charity dedicated to providing support for patients, families and carers so that no-one feels alone facing the effects of a brain tumour diagnosis.
The charity provides a personalised service to support not just patients themselves but also their families, carers and loved ones. They offer individualised, specialist information, practical guidance and emotional and psychological support to help cope with the challenges faced. Support is available at any point from diagnosis, and for as long as it is needed.
Brain Tumour Support is also passionate about the importance of increased public awareness of brain tumours, their symptoms, diagnosis and long-term impact, and works to improve knowledge and understanding both nationally and internationally.
To provide their current services Brain Tumour Support needs £400,000 a year, and with no statutory funding whatsoever they rely solely on private donations and fundraising to achieve this. Every single pound raised is hugely appreciated and very carefully spent to make a real difference to those who need such vital support.
