The Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity – Our Mission:

Helping Josh give help and hope to children & their families who have brain tumours, post surgery disabilities & along Josh’s Journey.


  • We help children who have or have had a brain tumour & their families with advice, support & financial solutions, with special focus on those who also have post surgery disabilities.
  • We also help organisations and places along Josh’s Journey, hospitals, care centres, special schools & brain tumour awareness groups.
  • A secondary aim of the charity is to help raise awareness of the need for improved changing facilities for young people and adults. Josh wore pads and it became increasingly difficult to find places to change as he got older.
  • We want to raise awareness of this to the public, businesses & organisations and work with them to improve their facilities.
  • Josh & his team of Thumbraisers will give them a thumbs up ‘changing friendly’ rating and advice as how they can improve – more info on this to come!

How can we help?

Here are some of the ways we help families across England & Wales.

  • We give families grants for hospital expenses & travel – a 2 week stay can cost over £200 in meals, parking, petrol etc.
  • We can provide specialist equipment and house adaptations such as ceiling track hoists and through-floor lifts. These are vial when it comes to moving and handling big heavy lumps like Josh was. These cost between £4K and £10K each.
  • We help with special treats, like holidays after Chemo, to give families holistic respite and time together again to be normal, so important after such stressful times.
  • We help hospitals by donating teenage entertainment packages, full of Xbox’s, TVs & iPads.
