The Brain Tumour Charity

We have selected The Brain Tumour Charity to be our chosen charity of the year.

We’ll be raising money and awareness through a variety of fundraising activities – to learn more and to lend your support, check our latest news, or follow us on Twitter or Facebook.
The Brain Tumour Charity is the UK’s largest dedicated brain tumour charity, committed to fighting brain tumours on all fronts.
They fund scientific and clinical research into brain tumours and offer support and information to those affected, whilst raising awareness and influencing policy.
Their aim is to improve understanding, diagnosis and treatment of brain tumours.

The Research

We fund world-class research to save lives
Less than 2% of cancer research funding in the UK is spent on brain tumours – we are committed to increasing this. As the UK’s largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours, currently spending £2.5 million per year, we are the experts in this area. World class research is at the heart of everything we do – it informs the information, the awareness and the policy work that we deliver.

The Information and Support

We can provide you with expert support and information.
Whether you’re living with a brain tumour, or you’re a family member or friend, we can provide support every step of the way. We cover adult and paediatric brain tumours of all types and grades. We can guide you through any aspect of living with a brain tumour, from dealing with diagnosis and the impact of treatment to travel insurance or preparing for the end of life.
We offer a range of support services that cover phone, online, face-to-face support and counselling.
Our professional and compassionate Support & Info Line offers a confidential way to ask questions or raise concerns about a diagnosis, treatments and how it may affect your daily life. You can access this support by phone, email or online. Our growing network of support groups help you connect with others in your area plus we provide online discussion forums and regular phone support groups.

The Awareness

We focus on specific brain tumour issues.
We are able to measure the impact of our work and see a difference for people living with a brain tumour and the thousands more that are diagnosed each year.
Our current campaign is HeadSmart: be brain tumour aware, which aims to shorten unacceptable diagnosis times for childhood brain tumours through raising awareness and knowledge of the signs and symptoms. This will reduce long-term disabilities and ultimately save children’s lives.
The Brain Tumour Charity leads the ongoing promotion and funding of this campaign. Since its launch in June 2011, average diagnosis times have been reduced by almost 2 weeks to 6.7 weeks. We are committed to bringing average diagnosis times to under 5 weeks to be on a par with, if not better than, the rest of the world.
