Children and Families Service
Funding Support to Improve Lives
Going through treatment for a brain tumour is an incredibly stressful situation, which is why it’s important to know you’re not alone. Working alongside The Brain Tumour Charity, we help fund The Children and Families Service who offer support to children, young people and families affected by a brain tumour diagnosis. They’re there to help with any information you might need, answer your questions, listen and provide support. We can help you develop ways to cope, take control and connect with others who are going through similar experiences.
The dedicated Children and Families Service aims to reduce isolation and anxiety for children and their families. If you need support please email [email protected] or call 0808 800 0004 and ask for the Children and Families Team.
Family Days return
This year, we connected 111 families and young adults together through our Family Days and Young Adults events. At our first Family day since 2019, we took our families to Hobbledown Farm where we had farm animal petting, arts & crafts and even teddy bear making. The families had a great time and they all left with smiles on their faces and new friends, even some animal friends!
“It was the first event with the brain tumour charity that we have been to, so felt really nervous. Completely didn’t need to be it was a fabulous event and my girls had the best time, thank you so much.”
In November, Santa took time out of his busy schedule to visit us at Tamworth Snow Dome! An incredible day was had by all and it was so wonderful being able to bring so many families together at Tamworth and have a day where families could ‘switch off’ and as many families said have ‘a break from normal life with no stress or worries’ The families had a great time and left feeling festive!
‘Contact post Covid is so important. It’s brilliant for the children to socialise with other families with similiar issues’
Working with The Brain Tumour Charity The Lewis Moody Foundation funds a series of Family Days across the UK. These give families affected by a brain tumour the chance to spend time together away from hospital, meet other families and enjoy a day out without having to worry about finances.
Family Days provide a fun, relaxing, and supportive experience. They also offer an opportunity for parents and children to meet others experiencing similar difficulties and share their stories.
We hold Family Days for families who have either a child or parent living with a brain tumour. Our events are aimed at families with children under 18 years.
All the activities involved in a Family Day are free. Lunch, drinks and snacks are provided throughout the day.
We have plenty in store for 2023 so watch this space for updates!
