Why signposting support matters
“If we can reach people close to the point of diagnosis, we know our coaching and support has a greater impact”– Will Jones, chief executive at brainstrust
We know that when people are diagnosed with a brain tumour, they need support at home.
This needs to come from people who understand the fear, confusion and isolation, and who can empower and resource them to overcome it.
Working with healthcare professionals, we can ensure that people affected by a brain tumour receive comprehensive support.
“Healthcare professionals are important gatekeepers in linking patients with the relevant charities for their needs. Our past research has shown that 69% of the public agree that they would be more likely to go to a charity for information about a health condition if a nurse, GP, or consultant recommended it. This emphasises the essential role that healthcare professionals play in getting people to access key information and services from charities”– nfpSynergy, 2018
