Support group video chats
Due to the coronavirus pandemic and for the safety of all those we support, Brain Tumour Support has suspended all regional support group meetings and charity-organised socials.
However 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.
We have a schedule of regular, live online meet-ups that you can join via your computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone.
If you have internet access and your device has a camera and microphone, you will be able to be part of a video chat.
Please email us or call 01454 422701 for further information and details of how to join.
Don't worry if video meetings are new to you!
Our video chats are facilitated by a trained Brain Tumour Support Worker so there is always someone on hand to help.
And remember you don't have to switch your camera on if you'd prefer not to. You will be given the option to use your camera before joining the meeting.
