Explore how we can work together to help people with a brain tumour to become involved in their care, and be comfortable and confident with their ‘new normal’.
brainstrust was founded in 2006. The charity provides impactful support to thousands of people and their caregivers in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland who are living with a brain tumour.
Our current strategy, ‘first, we are people’, launched in 2019, sees us work to eliminate isolation, grow involvement with care and the condition, reduce fear, and improve knowledge and understanding.
We do this through events, coaching, training, information and advocacy, collaborating wherever possible.
This work delivers outcomes for patients and their caregivers across 6 indicators:
- Reduced isolation
- Involvement with communities
- Creating control
- Feeling supported
- Feeling resourced
Our support, rooted in coaching principles and practices, aligns seamlessly with the NHS 10 year plan and its commitment to patient centred care.
We have a proven, evidential track record in helping patients to be confident and involved partners in their care.
