Our accreditations

As a charity we are proud of our accreditations. Our information and our practices are regularly audited so that you can trust what you are reading to be accurate and up to date.

The accreditations we've earned evidence our continued commitments to our supporters and beneficiaries.

Association of Medical Research Charities

We have been a member of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) since 2006 and fund our research in the fairest way through an open, transparent process called peer review. Peer review is the only way to ensure the very best research, with the biggest potential impact, is selected for funding and that it is not duplicated by research elsewhere.

Our supporters can be confident that the money they raise is spent in the most effective way, with the best chance of success to improve understanding, diagnosis and treatment of brain tumours.

Researchers are eligible for top up funding of 26p for every £1 invested through the government's Charity Research Support Fund.

We have received the AMRC's Certificate of Best Practice for our peer review process three times, the latest being November 2015 following a successful audit.

It was a very clear and well written audit response. The committee agreed that the information and links were very helpful and that the peer review process was robust.

Over the years we are proud to have been certified as a provider of high quality health and social care information through The Information Standard, the standard that allows the public to identify reliable and trustworthy sources of information.

Following the retirement of Information Standards, we have continued to work to those same standards to ensure we continue to provide clear, accurate, impartial, appropriately researched, accessible and up-to-date information.

Being a member of the Helplines Partnership ensures we monitor and continually raise the standard of the services we provide through sharing information, best practice and expertise.

Fundraising Standards Board

We are open, honest and transparent – we will tell our supporters what we're trying to raise each year, how much we've raised and what it's been spent on. We will also share our long term ambitions.

We are committed members of the Fundraising Standards Board and follow their fundraising promise to ensure we meet the highest standards, so people can give and fundraise for us with confidence and trust. We follow the Institute of Fundraising's Code of Fundraising Practice.
