Young Adults Events

If you're aged 16-30 and living with, or beyond, a brain tumour diagnosis, join us at one of our young adults events and meet others that understand. 

What to expect at our Young Adults events

Everyone is welcome, you can even bring a family member, friend or partner as your plus one. We're an informal and friendly bunch and the events are a fantastic way to meet new people who understand what you're going through.

The events are free to attend, we ask that you register in advance so that we know how many people to expect and wouldn't want anyone to miss out. 

Young Adults Events and COVID-19

Due to the current situation with the coronavirus COVID-19 and uncertainty of future government advice around travel and public meetings we are reviewing our upcoming Young Adults events. 

Our decision to cancel any upcoming events hasn’t been taken lightly, we know how much you enjoy these opportunities to get together (as do we!) but we felt it was the right decision to take a precautionary approach and we apologise for any inconvenience caused.

We are so sorry that we won’t get to see you all as planned but we are exploring possible alternative options to get together digitally, for example an online video chat. We will keep this page updated with any further details on these plans.

Thank you for your understanding, if you have any questions or if there’s anything else we can help with please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Upcoming events

These dates are currently to be confirmed, join our community if you would like to find out about future events.

If you're younger than 18, you may also be interested in attending one of our Teen Days.

Please don't worry about…

  • Money. The day is free to attend and lunch will be provided free of charge.
  • Not making friends. We guarantee you will, everyone is in a similar boat and understands your situation so you’re sure to make friends. Plus, our friendly team are there to help too.
  • Fatigue. You’ll be surrounded by people who understand and if there’s anything you don’t want to do, or if you just want some time to relax, that's 100% okay!
  • Not being good at the activities. This is a relaxed space of supportive peers where it’s not the winning but the taking part (and having fun) that counts.
  • Coming alone. You’re welcome to bring a plus-one, however, you’re sure to meet lots of people so don’t worry if you do come alone; you soon won’t be!

If you have any questions please contact the Young Adults Team on YAS@thebraintumourcharity.org.

Mary and Iona

After months of chatting to each other on Instagram, Mary and Iona were thrilled to finally meet in person at our first young adults' meet up of the year in Birmingham.

As Mary and Iona know, it can be a lifeline talking to someone who “gets it."

Thank you!

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

Thank you!
