Online meet ups
We know how invaluable our face-to-face events can be and while we’re currently unable to bring everyone together in person, we still want to give you the chance to meet new people and share your experiences.
It’s so important, now more than ever, to keep in touch with friends, family and others to help us through these unfamiliar times.
This is why we’ve introduced our online meet ups. These sessions are hosted by our Support and Information team, and give you the opportunity to connect with others affected by a brain tumour in a completely new and safe way.
As these are small group sessions, spaces are limited, so please sign-up below to help us know who to expect on the day.
