Who we are


We are every mother taking her child for an urgent brain scan.
We are every health professional going above and beyond to help.
We are every pioneering researcher searching endlessly for a breakthrough.

We are the Brain Tumour Charity and we understand that when you, or a loved one is diagnosed with a brain tumour, a cure really can't wait.

That's why we're working faster and going further to beat brain tumours sooner.

And, as the world's leading brain tumour charity, we're the only charity to help on all three of these vital fronts:


We provide essential funding to pioneering researchers, and connect people, resources and ideas to the areas where they're needed most.


We campaign for urgently needed policy change, organise resource and knowledge sharing across the world and work tirelessly to accelerate progress towards a cure. We rally people behind our cause.


From helping people with a brain tumour, to supporting their friends and families – we're here to help anyone whose life is affected.

From fleet-footed fundraisers, to relentless research scientists. From the brave facing up to a diagnosis, to the health professionals helping them. And from close friends and families to kind strangers and everyone in between. We are a growing movement of people from every walk of life, who all believe that change isn't happening fast enough.

We are passionate. We are forward-thinking. We are determined.

We are The Brain Tumour Charity. And together, with your support, we will find a cure faster.
