About us

We are Yorkshire's Brain Tumour Charity, or YBTC.

YBTC is Yorkshire's leading brain tumour charity dedicated to raising funds for life changing research and patient support.

Formerly known as Andrea's Gift and later Brain Tumour Research and Support across Yorkshire. Read about the origins of YBTC.

Our vision

Brain tumours don't discriminate, so neither do we. Our purpose is to support anyone impacted by a primary brain tumour across Yorkshire.

Our vision is a world where brain tumours are cured.

Our mission is to support patients and their loved ones through the devastation a primary brain tumour diagnosis can bring, making sure they have someone to turn to at any stage of their journey, while funding innovative research across Yorkshire to find better treatments and ultimately a cure.

Why we are here

Around 11,000 new cases of primary brain tumours are diagnosed in the UK every year, 15 each week in Yorkshire. Whilst we are working to find a cure, we will provide the best patient and family support network we can.

We want to make this number smaller, and make life easier for those who are affected, by:

  • Raising significant funds to support dedicated research projects into treating and curing child and adult brain tumours and sharing our findings with other charities.

  • Giving grants and financial assistance to brain tumour patients and their carers.

  • Arranging for hospital wards, patients and research centres to be provided with all the equipment they need.

  • Supporting patients and their loved ones through providing practical advice (our benefits clinic), running support groups, offering counselling and a range of other holistic therapies.
