Join our Involvement Network

Help us shape the future of The Charity, the services we provide and the research we fund.

Joining our Involvement Network empowers you to use your personal experiences with brain tumours to help shape the work being done by The Charity. You can get involved in lots of different ways, from reviewing our information or taking part in a virtual focus group to sharing your story or completing a survey.

Signing up to join the Involvement Network doesn't mean you're obligated to take part at every opportunity - just choose the opportunities that match your experience and interest. You can give as much or little time as you like and only when it suits you

Each month, we'll emal you with opportunites to get involved that we think match your experience and interests, as well as updates of the work you’ve been involved in so you can see the huge difference you make.

As well as our Involvement Network, we have several involvement groups who give their input and work with us on a range of activities, including our Young Ambassadors, BRIAN Champions and our new group of Involvement Champions.

Our contributions as volunteers means our own experiences and knowledge help play a really important part in contributing to the awareness and further success of the Charity and its ongoing pursuits to improve medical research, which in turn improves the lives of those battling this hidden yet serious health condition.
