Who are we?
Recently named one of the Third Sector's ‘Best Charities to Work For’, we are committed to moving further, faster to accelerate change for everyone affected by a brain tumour.

You’ll have a passion for improving health outcomes through policy development, influencing and proactive campaigning, and you'll share our commitment to being evidence-based and patient-focused in all we do.
If this is for you, we’d love to hear from you!

Did you know that we were ranked 11th Best Charity to Work For 2020 by Third Sector? Oh yes, and crowned Third Sector’s Charity of the Year in 2018? Not to mention we have won a variety of other awards and have been ranked a top global organisation by renowned management consultants McKinsey! While we’re not boasting, we are particularly proud that our HeadSmart campaign scooped the NHS Innovation Award, a Third Sector Excellence Award and a Charity Times Award (well, maybe we’re boasting a little bit!).
