Our Young Adults Service for young adults aged 16-30 with a brain tumour diagnosis, is here to offer support and help you connect with others.
The team are here to help with any information you might need and can help with researching and sending out information on topics such as tumour types, treatments and clinical trials. We provide a listening ear when you need it, are happy to listen to your concerns or frustrations and will do our best to answer any questions you might have or point you in the direction of other services.
Receiving the news you have a brain tumour is something we wished no one had to hear, we are here to support you and your family and are here to listen and help answer any questions you might have. Whether you want to connect over email, Facebook messenger, telephone calls or text please do get in touch as we are here to help however we can.
We are also able to research information on your behalf so whether its information on tumour types, treatments, clinical trials, current research, getting a second opinion or anything else you'd like to know more about, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us and we'll look into this for you.
We can also offer information and advice on a range of other issues as well as support you to connect with other services such as our benefits clinic and other local and national services that you might find useful.
Our Young Adult Events and dedicated Young Adults Facebook Group are a great way to connect with others who are going through similar experiences, meet our Young Ambassadors and to access support from the team face to face. You can find out more about our upcoming events here, we hope you are able to join us.
