Rare Childhood Brain Tumour Support and Research

Charitable Trusts and Foundations
- a vital contribution to our work

Joss Searchlight are so grateful for the generous support that we receive via charitable trusts and foundations.

We need to get the brain tumour cure rate up now


Since its inception, Joss Searchlight has always supported families dealing with a child’s cancer diagnosis. We have been a friendly listening ear, giving emotional support to stressed and scared parents, given practical support to families caring for a child at home – whether that be home alterations or supplying wheelchairs and assisted living equipment.

Over 400 children get a brain tumour each year in the U.K.

Working with trusts

Joss Searchlight are totally reliant on donations to carry out our work. We’re excited and enthusiastic to work closely with other large research organisations, Charitable Trusts and Foundations to ensure that our joint charitable aims are at the forefront of everything we do. 

We look forward to working with you to help find a cure for life-threatening brain tumours and help support families on their child’s cancer journey.  You will be kept fully informed of what we are doing, how we are using your grant and receive a progress report.



After years of campaigning, Proton Therapy is now available in U.K
