What happens at a Family Day?
Watch our video to learn more about our Family Days and hear the Mitchell family explain why they found attending an event helpful.
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.
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.email@example.com.
Family Day activities include:
Our Family Days also provide the opportunity for parents and children to meet others experiencing similar difficulties and share their stories.
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.
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
