About Us

The Brain Tumour Charity is the UK’s largest dedicated brain tumour charity, committed to fighting brain tumours on all fronts. We fund scientific and clinical research into brain tumours and offer support and information to those affected, whilst raising awareness and influencing policy. Our aim is to improve understanding, diagnosis and treatment of brain tumours.

Our findings show that more can be done to ensure brain tumour patients are treated with sensitivity and compassion at every stage.
Sarah Lindsell - CEO of The Brain Tumour Charity
Our report clearly shows the devastating impact of brain tumours, the need for greater awareness and understanding of the disease and the importance of research to develop more effective treatments.
Sarah Lindsell, Chief Executive, The Brain Tumour Charity
This report from The Brain Tumour Charity highlights so many of the problems experienced by the brain tumour patients I see in my clinic but which are often not discussed during medical consultations
Lewis Thorne, consultant neurosurgeon
Our strategy is necessarily and unashamedly ambitious but it is not only decades overdue, it is an essential step towards our vision of a world where brain tumours are defeated.
Sarah Lindsell, CEO of The Brain Tumour Charity
The Charity is offering something precious to everyone affected by a brain tumour: hope.
Tasha Floyd, brain tumour patient
We are immensely grateful to Tom and Lawrence for taking on this extraordinary challenge and we wish them the very best of luck. Everyone at The Charity will be following their progress closely over the coming weeks and willing them on across the Atlantic.
Sarah Lindsell, CEO of The Brain Tumour Charity
This is the largest single donation we have received for research into childhood brain tumours and it will have a profound impact on our work. It will allow us to accelerate progress towards better understanding of the disease and more effective treatments
Sarah Lindsell, Chief Executive of The Brain Tumour Charity
I am delighted to take on this role. I have been lucky enough to be able to consider a number of approaches to become a charity chair in the last year or so. But of all the charities with which I have had conversations, The Brain Tumour Charity stood out for several reasons. I am impressed that their overheads are genuinely tiny and that they spend nearly every penny they raise on medical research and raising awareness of this terrible disease. They have made a measurable impact and their ambitions are exciting.
Sir Martin Narey
The Brain Tumour Charity gave us so much help and advice. It was a port in what would otherwise have been an unweatherable storm
Tom Rainey
We recognise the effective work that Be Clear on Cancer has done to raise awareness of certain types of cancer. But its impact would be much greater if it also included brain tumours, which kill more children and adults under 40 than any other type of cancer.
Sarah Lindsell, CEO of The Brain Tumour Charity
They might as well say our children’s lives are worthless […] It feels like the government has abandoned everyone living with this cruel disease and are failing in their duty of care.
Rosalind Bell, a mother whose son battled a brain tumour
We hear so many shocking stories from patients whose brain tumours went undiagnosed for years after they first consulted a doctor about their symptoms. The research project we are funding should find out for the first time the real extent of the problem, why it happens and what can be done to make things better.
Sarah Lindsell, CEO of The Brain Tumour Charity
Wearing a bandana on 6 March is a simple way for anyone to show their support for such an important cause.

My hair will grow back but, meanwhile, I’m happy being on screen as I am. I’m working with The Brain Tumour Charity to help raise awareness about brain tumours – it’s the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40.
Vicki Brown
I have made this film to try and disseminate critical information to future patient populations about the invisible barriers they will face beyond their biological diagnosis, that preclude in most cases their access to the treatments at the front of the innovation curve.
