Our Vision, Mission and Values
16,000 people every year are diagnosed with a brain tumour
Brain Tumour Research:
Our vision is to find a cure for brain tumours.
Our mission is to build a network of experts in sustainable brain tumour research.
Brain tumours are indiscriminate; they can affect anyone at any age. What’s more, they kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer... yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research has been allocated to this devastating disease.
This is unacceptable!
We are striving to fund a network of seven dedicated research centres whilst challenging the Government and larger cancer charities to invest more in brain tumour research.
We are the only national charity in the UK that is purely dedicated to raising funds for continuous and sustainable scientific research into brain tumours and we are a leading voice calling for greater support and action for research into what scientists are calling the last battleground against cancer.
Help us fund the fight. Together we will find a cure.
Our values underpin our vision of finding a cure, representing our guiding philosophy and
how we go about delivering our mission.

Agile, energetic and courageous, we continually demand better outcomes for patients and their families.
