Online brain tumour support groups
Our brain tumour support groups offer a safe online space where you can connect with others who know what you’re going through.
Whether you’re living with a brain tumour or supporting someone who is, you’ll find a welcoming community of people who have been there and understand how you feel.
You can ask questions, get support from others and share your own experiences at any time of the day or night – it’s a safe space where you can be totally open. Or you can simply read people’s stories, knowing that there are others right there with you.
I’ve gained so much from other people’s experiences. Night or day, there’s always someone online to talk to. It gives me great comfort and I remember I’m not alone on this journey.

Our community share their top reasons to join
1. Learn from others
The communities’ members can help make your journey a little less overwhelming by sharing their wealth of experiences.
I quickly realised how helpful it was to read about others going through the same experiences that my daughter and I were.
2. Know you're not alone
Our online brain tumour support groups have thousands of members, including some outside the UK. So there’s a good chance you’ll find someone who’s had a very similar experience.
It was such a relief to find people that knew exactly what I was talking about.
3. Find support at any time
Our communities are open 24/7, so there’s likely to always be someone else there who's unable to sleep at 2am.
Being in the group allows us to get access to unlimited support whenever it’s required.
4. Discover your options
You can explore different treatments options by sharing information with others being treated in different places.
There’s an abundance of information, which is a wonderful resource.
