NEW support meetups launched this month

NEW support meetups launched this month

Tue 31 August

We're thrilled to say that, thanks to National Lottery funding, we will be expanding our range of support and bringing more services to your area.
At the end of our last series of support sessions, we asked for your feedback, comments and suggestions. We've taken these on board and used them to rethink how we offer support across Yorkshire.

We're excited to launch a brand new series of meetups, drop-in cafés, get-togethers and walks, to go alongside our regular counselling, hypnotherapy and dedicated phone line.

Support meetups

We're thrilled to be bringing back some in-person meetups this autumn, as well as continuing to offer online groups for those who prefer it. Join us for:
  • Leeds Support Meetup on the second Monday of the month, 1pm-2.30pm at Maggie's Centre
  • Online Support Meetup on the first Tuesday of the month, 6.30pm-8pm on Zoom
  • Sheffield Support Meetup at Weston Park Cancer Support Centre, details TBA
These meetups will have a different theme each week. The themes could be anything from fatigue to identity, from anxiety management to self-compassion.

Wellbeing walks

We're delighted to be partnering with Good Footing to offer free wellbeing walks in beauty spots across Yorkshire. These walks are open to any adult affected by a brain tumour, including patients, relatives and loved ones.

The first of the walks, at St Aiden's Nature Reserve, was a huge success. Our upcoming dates are:
  • Saturday 5th September at Oakwell Hall, Birstall
  • Sunday 26th September at Wentworth Woodhouse, Barnsley
  • Sunday 17th October at Temple Newsam, Leeds
We can also arrange up to six 1-2-1 walks with a trained Good Footing member of staff.

  • Create Café Wakefield on the fourth Thursday of every month from 10.30am-12.30pm
