Support for children and families

Our dedicated Children and Families Team are here to help however we can. Whether you'd like information and support in relation to a new diagnosis or information about life after a diagnosis, the team are here to help every step of the way.

Some of the things we can help with are:

Research Requests

The team are able to research information on your behalf so whether its information on tumour types, treatments, clinical trials, current research, getting a second opinion or anything else you'd like to know more about, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us and we'll look into this for you.

Emotional Support

Receiving the news your child has a brain tumour is something we wished no parent had to hear, we are here to support you and your family and are here to listen and help answer any questions you might have.

Additional Support

The team can also offer information and advice on issues with education, are able to connect you with other services such as our benefits clinic and can signpost to other local and national services that you might find useful.

Connecting with others

Our Family Days and Parents Facebook Group are a great way to connect with others who are going through similar experiences and to access support from the team face to face. You can find out more about our upcoming events here, we hope you are able to join us.
