Help us grow our Tree of Support
Our experienced Support Professionals are able to provide a consistent one to one contact at any stage from the point of diagnosis and for as long as support is needed. They are trained the Brain Tumour Support way, offering a unique approach to provide a wide range of counselling and support services from the point of diagnosis, at any stage of treatment, through palliative and end of life care, and beyond.
In order to reach many more people across the country we want to grow our Support Team and for each additional full time Support Professional we need to raise £20,000.

Each Support Professional provides a consistent point of contact and invaluable practical and emotional support for up to 128 families over the course of a year.
Our specialist counselling can provide a vital additional level of support for individuals, couples and families.
Our Support Sessions are a treasured service attended by over 800 people every single year. They provide an invaluable opportunity to engage with our Support Professionals and speak to others going through similar experiences.
Our Support Line is a vital point of contact. Facing a brain tumour diagnosis can be terrifying and very isolating. A listening ear and a friendly voice is invaluable at such a difficult time.
Our specialist benefits and welfare advice helps to identify benefits entitlement and give assistance with applications and appeals. The impact on everyday life and financial cost of a brain tumour diagnosis can be extremely stressful, and support through this can be essential.
