  • Never feel lost with our new guides to support in your area

    We know how hard it is to find the right support when you’ve been diagnosed with a brain tumour. It’s the reason why we founded brainstrust 10 years ago and why we wanted to provide 24/7 personal support and then signpost you to all of the other help available, wherever you may live.


    Following a successful trial in Sheffield, we’re today launching four brand new directories that will help you find your way on this journey.

     

    These directories, entitled ‘The Little White Book’  are produced regionally and signpost you to all of the support available in Merseyside, Greater LondonSouth East Scotland and Glasgow, with more on the way.

     

    Never feel lost

    The guides will help you:

     

    • Feel less alone: we’ve included details of local support services, groups and networks 
    • Have improved wellbeing: there are details of local psychological support, complimentary therapies and even short breaks enclosed 
    • Get back on top of things: you’ll find services that can help you with welfare and legal advice, and even transport
    • Be prepared: respite and bereavement services are also included in the directories 

     

    Helen Bulbeck, our Director of Services and Policy at brainstrust says:

    For a hard copy of the guide, just email hello@brainstrust.org.uk and we'll send one out in the post for you, free of charge. 

    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 now available.
