Tom’s Trust is dedicated to providing Clinical Psychology for children with brain tumours and their families.
Tom’s Trust was founded in 2011 by Andrew and Debs Whiteley following the death of their only son Tom, at the age of nine after a tough but brave seven-month battle with a brain tumour. The charity evolved because Debs and Andrew desperately needed more psychological support during this time for their selves, for Tom and for his sisters and there was almost none. They wanted to make sure that other families didn’t have this experience and received the support they needed and deserved.
