Practical help and support groups

Our Support Group is aimed at patients over the age of 18 who have been diagnosed with a primary brain tumour and their families and friends. We provide an environment which is supportive and positive creating an opportunity for patients and their families to meet other people who have shared experiences and challenges whilst maintaining confidentiality. We also provide up to date information on a range of topics through our visiting guest speakers and social events.
