    About Us

    Welcome to Brainwaves NI

    Brainwaves NI is Northern Ireland’s only volunteer led brain tumour research and support charity.  We aim to provide support for brain tumour patients, their families, and carers, raise awareness of brain tumours and fund vital research at the Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research, Queen’s University Belfast, to help find a cure for brain cancer.

    As a registered charity Brainwaves NI has been providing support services to children and adults with brain tumours since 1994.  The charity is managed by an annually elected committee of volunteers dedicated to the belief that together we can make a difference to the lives of those affected by a brain tumour.

    Brainwaves NI is both a research and support charity.  Research is fundamental to finding a cure for brain tumours.  We have a strong relationship with the Patrick G Johnston Centre for Cancer Research, Queen’s University, Belfast. Over the last number of years we have provided over £500,000 funding towards that vital research.

    The startling statistics are that more children and adults under 40 die of a brain tumour than any other cancer.  Yet the national spend on research is around 1%.

    We organise activities which offer social and emotional support.  These activities provide an opportunity for families to come together to share their experiences and support one another.

    We rely totally on donations and encourage you to become a member/supporter to help us help you.
