Young Adults Service

Are you a young adult aged 16-30 who has either received a brain tumour diagnosis or is affected by a loved one’s diagnosis? Our Young Adults Service is here for you.

We know that receiving a brain tumour diagnosis, or learning of a loved one’s diagnosis, is a life-changing event that can lead to lots of questions. We know that it is not always easy to ask these of your friends and family and it can be difficult to access your healthcare team at the exact moment a question comes to mind.

Our Young Adults Service is here for you, helping you to connect with others and supporting you with any information you might need.

We are grateful to the Elliott Simmons Charitable Trust and the Lewis Moody Foundation who kindly support our Young Adults Service.
