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. Working with healthcare partners is an important part of our strategy, ensuring you have the support and resources from us that will allow you to best support your patients.
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.
Meaningful collaboration and co-creation is a key component of our approach as we work to secure the best outcomes for anyone who is living with a brain tumour. Find out how collaborative work is helping us secure the best outcomes for people living with a brain tumour.
