The Brain Tumour Charity

We’re moving further, faster to help every single person affected by a brain tumour.

Living with a brain tumour

A brain tumour diagnosis, whether it is you or a loved one who receives it, is devastating. It can be very difficult to accept and can change your life in many ways. It can have a significant impact on your social, physical, functional and emotional well-being.

We aim to provide you with information to help and support you in dealing with this life-changing event in the best way possible – to help you understand what challenges might lay ahead, and to find ways of dealing with these challenges as effectively as possible – whether you have a brain tumour or are caring for someone with a brain tumour.

Whether you've been diagnosed with a brain tumour, or it's a family member or friend, we are here to help. We offer a wide range of inclusive and accessible services for everyone affected by a brain tumour, whether it's low or high grade, adult or child.

These are described as the 10 ways we can help:

1. Our Step by Step interactive guide walks you through what to expect at each stage after your diagnosis. You'll find questions to ask your healthcare team, suggested actions for you to take and useful resources for you to explore.

Our team is here to listen, support you and help with any information you need. Email us at, call us using 0808 800 0004 or start a live chat today.

2. We have a dedicated team specialising in supporting your family and children with advice, events, parents' groups, education resources, animations and more.

3. Our Young Adults team and Young Ambassadors focus on supporting 16-30 year olds, with advice and videos, communities, events, employment and education resources and more.

4. Our Information Pack gives you everything you need to know in one manageable package. Perfect for if you, or someone you know, has just been diagnosed.

5. Connect directly with other people affected by a brain tumour diagnosis in our online support groups on Facebook, HealthUnlocked and Instagram.

6. Our BRIAN app will help you manage your experience day-to-day and the data you input will help accelerate research into brain tumours.

7. Join one of our online meet ups, where you can connect with others going through similar experiences.

8. Our free relationship counselling from Relate can help strengthen your relationships, whether you're single at the moment or already part of a couple.

9. Our free, confidential, expert money and benefits clinic is a partnership with Citizens Advice. Book an appointment to access specialist advice and support.
