We know how hard it is to find great support when you’ve been diagnosed with a brain tumour. It’s the reason we founded brainstrust 10 years ago, and why we wanted to provide 24/7 personal support and signpost you to other help that’s available, wherever you may live.
We launched our Little White Book directories to help you find your way on your brain tumour journey. Each Little White Book is produced regionally and signposts you to the support available in each area.
We’re now launching Little White Books in Greater Manchester, Tees Valley, and one in the North West, focusing on children’s brain tumour services. Each book has easy to navigate information on UK brain tumour resources.
Never feel lost
Living with a brain tumour can be confusing and isolating. To help you find your way, the Little White Books include details of a wide range of support services. They will help you:
- Feel less alone: we’ve included details of local support services, groups and networks for both adults and children
- Have improved wellbeing: there are details of local psychological support, complementary therapies and even short breaks
- Get back on top of things: you’ll find people who can help you with welfare and legal advice, and even transport services
- Be prepared: respite and bereavement services are also included in the directories.
Find out what’s available in your area
We now have Little White Books outlining all of the support available to you in Merseyside, Greater London, South East Scotland and Glasgow, as well as Greater Manchester, Tees Valley and the North West Children’s, with more regions on the way.
You can access an online copy through our online catalogue https://issuu.com/brainstrust or if you’d prefer a printed copy email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll pop a copy in the post for you. For free.
It is with thanks to the support of the Rank Foundation, the Vera Wolstencroft Trust, The Big Lottery Fund, and our Patient Resources Intern James, who’s worked closely and tirelessly with our community on these guides, that such easy access to vital local support is available.
