Facebook Support Groups

The Brain Tumour Charity's Facebook groups offer a safe online space where people affected by a brain tumour can connect.

Whether you're living with a brain tumour or supporting a loved one, you're welcome to join one of our closed Facebook Groups. There you'll find a wealth of experience and information from around the world, at any time of the day or night.

I was greeted with a group of people who just got it. I could vent when I was angry, share when I was sad and tearful, and this group was always there. It didn't seem to matter what time of day or night, there was almost always someone online happy to chat.

          We have a minimum age requirement of 16 years for joining our Facebook groups.

          If you're under 16, email us at and our team will be in touch with more information on the support we can give you.

          Before we approve requests, we ask for a few details from you to make sure that everyone finds the right group for them and that we're creating tools and services that best meet the needs of our community.

          The groups are moderated by members of our Support Team for your protection. Click here to read our codes of conduct or you can find them displayed in the group.

          Nothing you post in the groups is shared on your personal profile or timeline, though the fact you are a member of the group is visible to other people.

          Four reasons to join our Facebook groups 

          1. The welcoming and hugely supportive members can help make your journey a little less overwhelming by sharing their wealth of experience.
          2. Our groups have thousands of members, mostly from the UK, but also from anywhere in the world. So, even if you have a rare tumour or side-effect, there's a good chance you'll find someone with a similar experience.
          3. Our groups are open 24/7, so you're likely to find someone else in the group who's unable to sleep at 2am.
          4. You can explore different treatments options by sharing your experiences with others who are being treated in different places.
