Working with us

As researchers in the field you are the experts working to defeat brain tumours and can inspire people to continue to give us the funds we need to support your work.

Every penny we spend on research comes from the people who have been inspired to defeat brain tumours. We need to keep raising money so that our investment in research can grow and we need everyone to see the progress we are making.

Our supporters are inspired by your work defending the most amazing part of the human body.

10 Ways we can work together

1. Tell the story

Everyone wants to hear from those doing the work. Become a spokesperson by offering your expert opinions in print, radio, online and on TV.

2. Speak Up

Our Information Days give people affected by brain tumours practical and up-to-date research information. Come and tell them about your work.

3. Speak out

On film or in person, we need you talking passionately for fundraising, campaigning and awareness raising events.

4. Show it off

Host a lab tour to show where the money goes. They are a great way to thank donors and inspire them to give or raise more.

5. Snap it up

A picture tells a thousand words. Send us photos of yourself in action, research images or ask our professionals in to capture what you do.

6. Raise the volume

Research stories are the most popular on our site, send us yours so we can raise the profile of your work. Why not join us on Facebook and Twitter, or contribute to our blog?

7. Give the card

Coping with a brain tumour is easier with the support and information we provide. Help us reach more people by telling those you treat about what we do. Just pass on one of our cards.

8. Share your expertise

Make sure our information is of a high standard by offering your expertise to review our Information Standard certified factsheets.

9. Raise awareness

Share the HeadSmart symptoms cards to help reduce diagnosis times for children with brain tumours.

10. Inspire your team

Engage your team by raising money together, run with The Brainy Bunch or pick a one off event and raise cash for our work yourself.
