More than 300 people a year in the Sheffield region could be supported by the new regional Brainstrust service.
The number represents how many people will be diagnosed with high grade tumours in a year.
There are over 120 different types of brain tumour and there has been a 16 per cent increase in related deaths in the last decade.
Brain tumours are also the biggest cancer killer of children and have a low survival rate.
Charity Brainstrust - started by the family of brain tumour patient Meg Jones – aims to tackle the psychological impact of a brain tumour diagnosis, such as people feeling isolated, lonely, fearing relapse and facing changes in their character.
Helen Bulbeck, co-founder and director of services, said: “We are really excited to be starting our new regional model for support with the community in Sheffield.”
