Information and support for carers
Caring for someone living with a brain tumour can be a difficult and isolating experience but our information and support team are here to answer any questions or queries you might have.
The majority of carers in the UK are “informal carers”, people who are helping to look after a loved one – rather than professionals. Many don’t consider themselves to be a ‘carer’ and just view what they are doing as a part of their relationship with that person.
Often this means that carers have a lot of questions but don’t know who they can turn to. It’s not always easy to ask friends or family and it can be difficult to access your healthcare team – especially when you have a pressing concern.
Our Information and support line offers a way to ask questions or raise concerns about your role as a carer. Our support team also provide a listening ear when you need it and are happy to listen to your concerns or frustrations and can point in the direction towards other services when appropriate.
If you need someone to talk to or advice on where to get help, we offer a wide range of inclusive and accessible support services for everyone affected by a brain tumour.
