The Western Trust is helping children and young people who have a parent or significant adult with cancer, to cope with dramatic changes it can often bring to their lives.

The free programme ‘Children’s Lives Include Moments of Bravery’ (CLIMB) is open to children aged 5 – 12 years. The programme helps children understand cancer through art, craft and play. It helps them talk about their fears and gives them the chance to meet other children in the same situation. It also gives parents and carers time out to meet.

Sessions are held over six weekly 90 minute group sessions on a Thursday evening between 5.30 – 7pm, at the Health and Wellbeing Campus on the Altnagelvin Hospital site.

To book a place for your child/children contact Caroline Oates on 028 7134 5171 extension 216254/216233 or via email:
