Family Days

Our Family Days take place across the UK and give families affected by a brain tumour the chance to spend time together away from hospital and enjoy a day out without having to worry about finances.

Family Day activities

The aim of The Brain Tumour Charity's Family Days is to provide a fun, relaxing, and supportive experience for children with a brain tumour, their siblings and parents.

All activities are free and we provide lunch and drinks and snacks throughout the day.

We may also be able to help with transport costs – please contact Elissa Coster, our Children and Families Service Manager for more information: Elissa.coster@thebraintumourcharity.org.

Family Day activities include:

  • A range of fun outdoor activities such as zip lining or kayaking
  • Arts and crafts
  • Information and support from our trained Children and Families Workers and other Brain Tumour Charity staff
  • The opportunity to meet other families in a similar situation to share stories and advice

Our Family Days also provide the opportunity for parents and children to meet others experiencing similar difficulties and share their stories.

Family Day dates

We run a number of Family Days throughout the year.

We also run Information Days where parents and carers can find out more about childhood brain tumours and the support available.

Family Days for children living with a brain tumour

We also run days for young adults aged 16-30 with a brain tumour diagnosis and their families. Our first TYA Big Meet will be taking place in Cheshire on Saturday 30th September

Paediatric Information Days

  • New dates to be announced soon
