Support sessions

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 Sessions which offer an opportunity for patients, family members, friends and carers to connect, gain support and information, 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 attend one of our Support Sessions.

Please email us or call 01454 422701 to tell us which session you're interested in and to secure your place.

Don't worry if video meetings are new to you!


Our video sessions are facilitated by a trained Support Professional 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.
