Drop-in cafés

Drop-in cafés

Come along to our drop-in cafés in Yorkshire, a chance for anyone impacted by a brain tumour to chat and share with others going through a similar situation.

We are delighted to be able to offer some more informal supportive get togethers for anyone impacted by a brain tumour.

Whether you are a patient, a family member, a carer or a friend, you are welcome to come to our drop-ins. You'll have the chance to chat to others who have experienced something similar, or simply relax with a hot drink and enjoy a social chat with others.

Karen's story

Karen told us about her experience of coming along to one of our Drop-In Cafés:

"I had been sceptical, wondering if this was for me, but decided to give it a go and I am so pleased I did.

"When I walked in there was a really warm welcome from Laura and Becky from the charity and an offer of a drink (the latte is very nice!)

"It was... a really nice, warm and friendly atmosphere to talk about anything; the thing we all have in common... or indeed, talk about anything but.

"The Drop-In Café feels like a real safe space where I can just be me, not trying to look as though everything is ok, and enjoy a cuppa. I find it really helpful to talk to people who have shared experiences. I am so pleased that I decided to give it a chance.

"The drop-ins run for a couple of hours. I know I thought I would go and just stay for an hour but have ended up staying for the full time, and then some! Hopefully you will find it as useful as my family and I have."
