  • telling your insurance provider
  • how long it might be until you can drive again
  • ways to manage the loss of your license.

Reliable websites

Access to the internet at the tips of our fingers has made getting hold of information quicker and easier than ever, but how can you know what sources to trust? Misinformation spreads fast online, and is sometimes shared by people with a large following.

This Know How will help you to:

  • understand what reliable websites look like
  • establish fact from fiction online
  • stop feeling overwhelmed by the volume of information available

We’re here to help if you have any more questions around these topics, or you would like some coaching support to help you deal with the issues your brain tumour is causing. Speak to your regional support specialist, or drop us an email if you would like to be connected to a support specialist near you.

We will continue to create new Know Hows, based on the needs of our community. If there is a topic you’d like to see covered, let us know! Email hello@brainstrust.org.uk with your suggestion. You can access the rest of our Know Hows, and other resources, here.
