Join our community on Facebook
Our closed Facebook groups are a great place to connect with other young adults affected by a brain tumour and share your experiences.Join today
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.
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.
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.
Join us for some fun online games and get to know others who understand.
As these are small group sessions, spaces are limited, so please sign-up below to help us know who to expect on the day.
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.
If you have any questions please contact the Young Adults Team on YAS@thebraintumourcharity.org.
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."
We are grateful to the Elliott Simmons Charitable Trust who kindly support our Young Adults Service.
A big thank you to the Lewis Moody Foundation (LMF) who also kindly support our Young Adults Service.
The LMF was founded by Lewis Moody MBE and his wife Annie in 2014. Since then, they've raised over £1.3m to help change the story around brain tumours.
