To help more people with a brain tumour and their caregivers across the North of England we’ve established a Leeds office and expanded our team.
Will Jones, our recently-appointed chief executive, is joined by four new employees, all based in the Leeds city centre office.
Expanding our brain tumour community
This is an exciting milestone for brainstrust as we expand our brain tumour community, bringing regional focus to our national service.
It means we can help more people who are living with a brain tumour, providing coaching-led cancer support round-the-clock.

If you’re in Leeds and want to pop in and say hello, or pick up some of our resources, we are right next door to the LGI’s Clarendon Wing at C6 Joseph’s Well, LS3 1AB.
