What we're funding

We are the leading funder of brain tumour research in the UK, committing over £35.6 million to date on pioneering projects that will help adults and children with brain tumours.

We spend 80p in every £1 donated on our charitable aims, so the more we raise, the more we will invest in research. We fund research through a competitive, fair and transparent process of best practice called peer review to ensure we only select the very best research that will have a real impact on those affected by brain tumours.
