Phone and Digital Support Groups

We know that it is not always easy for people with a brain tumour to get to a face to face support group. Our phone support groups offer the opportunity for you to connect with others affected by a brain tumour and discuss worries and concerns in a safe environment.

The groups take place on a monthly basis, on a set day and time and last for one hour. We have a number of groups so there are many days and times to choose from depending on what is best for you and availability within the group. Some members have been members for a while, are very welcoming to new members and are able to provide peer support as they have often faced similar questions and decisions in their own journey.

The groups are hosted by an experienced facilitator and the call is free of charge.

I have found it really helpful in the last 4 years and still do. I also hope that my experiences of living well with brain tumour are helpful to others.

High grade brain tumour phone support group

We're also currently running a phone support group specifically for members of our community who are living with a high grade diagnosis. This group meets every 4 weeks on Wednesdays at 12.00pm and next dates are:

  • 24 June
  • 22 July
  • 19 August.

We are only able to have a maximum number of six people in each group, if all the groups are currently full then we will happily open a new group when we have a minimum of four people registered.

To join a phone support group please give our Support and Information Team a call on 0808 800 0004 and they will gladly discuss the availability of each of these sessions.

Digital Carers Support Groups

If somebody you care for has been diagnosed with a brain tumour, our Digital Support Groups for carers and loved ones are a great chance to connect with others and support each other through these testing times.

No dates currently planned.

If you are interested in joining an Onine Meet Up for Carers, please contact the Support and Information Team by calling 0808 800 0004 or emailing support@thebraintumourcharity.org

Joining the digital support group

These sessions are free to attend and will be held using Zoom. Step-by-step instructions on how to use this platform will be sent via email after you sign-up.

We understand that new situations can sometimes feel daunting, but please don’t worry. You can join in with as little or as much of the conversation as you like – whatever feels right for you.
