Our accreditations

As a charity we are proud of our accreditations. Our information and our practices are regularly audited so that you can trust what you are reading to be accurate and up to date.

The accreditations we’ve earned evidence our continued commitments to our supporters and beneficiaries.

Association of Medical Research Charities

We have been a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) since 2006 and fund our research in the fairest way through an open, transparent process called peer review. Peer review is the only way to ensure the very best research, with the biggest potential impact, is selected for funding and that it is not duplicated by research elsewhere.

Our supporters can be confident that the money they raise is spent in the most effective way, with the best chance of success to improve understanding, diagnosis and treatment of brain tumours.

Researchers are eligible for top up funding of 26p for every £1 invested through the government’s Charity Research Support Fund.

We have received the AMRC’s Certificate of Best Practice for our peer review process three times, the latest being November 2015 following a successful audit.

It was a very clear and well written audit response. The committee agreed that the information and links were very helpful and that the peer review process was robust.
