Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
In order to protect the well-being of all those we support, and following the rapidly changing situation around the coronavirous (COVID-19), Brain Tumour Support has suspended all support group meetings and charity-organised socials. We anticipate that this will apply until the end of the year but will of course continue to monitor the situation and update this website accordingly.
However, in response to these restrictions we are now holding Support Group Video Chats which offer a similar opportunity for patients, family members, friends and carers to connect and share experience in a virtual space via Zoom. Please email us or call 01454 422701 for forthcoming dates and details of how to join.
Support is also still available through our Support Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) and our Support Line - 01454 422701. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Please be advised that we are not able to give medical opinions and if you are concerned that you may be experiencing coronavirus symptoms, please use the NHS 111 online service or call 111 (England, Scotland and Wales) or 0300 200 7885 (Northern Ireland). If you have had a brain tumour remember to inform the person you speak to of your diagnosis and any treatment you have received or are currently receiving.
Prior to coronavirus restrictions, our nine specialist Brain Tumour Support Workers operated at a local level across the South West, Midlands and South East Wales to provide support in a variety of ways to suit the individual.
Being regionally based and with their local knowledge they can help ensure patients and families receive direct, structured and hands-on support, and benefit from more accessible face to face support, one of our key services.
There is also ongoing support by telephone, email or text.
