How we can help

brainstrust is a UK based brain tumour support charity. We provide personal 24/7 support from the point of diagnosis onwards, and build resources that help people living with a brain tumour become stronger.  We also work with hospitals to secure the best care possible for brain cancer sufferers. And, because we truly understand, we’re able to campaign for the brain tumour community to help solve real issues.

Our approach to raising funds

We have one rule for anyone wanting to fundraise for brainstrust – whatever you choose to do must be fun.

We know that our fundraisers are incredible people. Many of you are seeing a loved one face this terrifying diagnosis and just want to do something positive, something useful.

 

Some of the amazing people that we support also take on extraordinary challenges.  Not only are they struggling many devastating physical and mental challenges that follow a diagnosis, but they choose to raise money for others in the same situation.


This makes us feel very humble.

 

We know that we wouldn’t be here without your support. And that’s why, if you agree to fundraise for brainstrust, we want you to have the best, most life changing experience possible.

 

So, whether you want to jump 10,000 feet, get sponsored to drink tea, climb a mountain or cycle many miles, we will support you every step of the way.
