  • Brain Tumour Support Charity.

  •   Please help us to support patients, families, friends and carers.



  • The origins of the charity lie in one family’s own devastating experience of a brain tumour diagnosis. A heart-rending journey but one which resulted in the pioneering support work which Hammer Out delivered for ten years, before moving forward under the new identity of Brain Tumour Support.

    Tina Mitchell Skinner is the charity's Founder and CEO.
    Her husband Paul started feeling unwell in February 2001 and passed away in January 2003.


    "Since Paul was diagnosed, support for families affected by a brain tumour, I am pleased to say, has improved enormously. What’s more, anyone who faces the devastating news of a tumour can now pick up the phone or send an email and now Brain Tumour Support is there to help, with a support network for patients and their families, made up largely of people who have experienced or been part of a similar journey. We are there for everyone, whatever the grade of tumour, whatever their individual need and however they need us to help. Thanks to a dedicated team of staff and the generosity of our supporters the charity is now in its second decade - I think Paul would be proud that we could fulfil this dream for him".
