Next month we will be launching our Re-Fresh Peer Support Group, which offers fun, friendship and support for young people affected by cancer or bereavement, in Barrow.

The group is open to youngsters aged 12 to 17 and will meet at our centre at 76 Duke Street where we'll be running a variety of activities.

The group will be led by our youth workers Lou Andrews and Chris Wadeson and will act as a non-judgemental space designed to take young people affected by serious illness our grief “out of themselves” and help them make new friends and support others in similar situations.

The Barrow group is an extension of the service that has been running at our Lancaster Centre for the past two years and which has helped support dozens of young people. The first meeting will be on Thursday 9 September at 6pm and will meet fortnightly thereafter. . One weekend each month there will be a full day of organised outdoor activities.

If you know anyone who may be interested, please help us spread the word.
