Young Adult Group at our Northern Ireland Family Day

Tuesday 16 July 2019 Northern Ireland Family Day Young Adult Events

If you're aged 16-30 and living with, or beyond, a brain tumour diagnosis, join us for our Young Adult Group at our Northern Ireland Family Day.

What should I expect?

We’re coming to Northern Ireland and Todds Leap open air activity centre for a fun-filled day outdoors. We’ll be joined by families affected by a brain tumour diagnosis and will have a dedicated group for young adults within the day. You’ll have the opportunity to meet and chat to others who are going through similar experiences and take part in archery, scale the climbing wall and there’ll even be a chance to have a go on a giant swing!

The day will be relaxed and informal with plenty of chill out space so you can take part in as much or as little as you’d like, getting to know others who understand the challenges a brain tumour diagnosis can bring and accessing support from The Brain Tumour Charity team.

If you’d like to bring a plus one with you, please do – this can be a family member, a friend or a partner.

Please note: Young adult plus ones must be over 16 or attend with an adult over 18.

Please don’t worry about…

  • Money. The day is free to attend and lunch and refreshments will be provided.
  • Feeling anxious about not making friends. We guarantee you will! Everyone is in a similar boat and understands your situation so you’re sure to make friends. Plus, our friendly team are there to help too.
  • Fatigue. You’ll be surrounded by people who understand and if there’s anything you don’t want to do, or if you just want some time to relax, this is 100% okay!
  • “I won’t be very good at…” This is a relaxed space of supportive peers where it’s not the winning but the taking part (and having fun) that counts.
  • “I’m coming alone!” You’re welcome to bring a plus one, however, you’re sure to meet lots of people. So don’t worry if you do come alone; you soon won’t be!

Sign up today!
