What is Barretstown’s YA Programme?
Barretstown is delighted to launch our new Young Adult Programme. Introduced in 2021, this free residential programme, including meals and accommodation, caters to young adults (aged 18-24). who have or have had cancer.
Run in conjunction with the Irish Cancer Society, the schedule for the weekend is a mix of activities and education/information based workshops designed to give you access to the information you need.
Sessions are optional for people to participate in, just like the ‘challenge by choice’ philosophy we use in all our therapeutic recreation based programmes.
