Young Adults Event Sheffield

Thursday 20 February 2020 Clifford House Young Adult Events

We’re bringing together young adults aged 16-30 living with or beyond a brain tumour diagnosis across Sheffield to find out more about local support, learn tips on managing side effects and take part in a range of activities. 

Come and join us to find out what’s available locally, try something new and connect with other young adults who are going through similar experiences. The day is for anybody affected by a brain tumour, whether it's high or low grade, and plus ones are very welcome.

The day is being run in partnership between the Teenage and Young Adult Team at Sheffield Weston Park Hospital and The Brain Tumour Charity with the support of Clifford House. There will be talks on the day from the Psychology team and the Young Adults Team at The Brain Tumour Charity as well as information stands from a variety of local organisations and workshops on cookery, photography, yoga and mindfulness.

What should I expect?

Whether you’ve been to an event before or this is something completely new, you are very welcome! We’d just like to make young adults from outside the Sheffield area aware that the support available is specific to Sheffield and the surrounding areas. 

There will be the opportunity to take part in as much or as little as you’d like throughout the day and there will be plenty of friendly faces from the Teenage and Young Adult Team from Weston Park Hospital as well as the Young Adults Team at The Brain Tumour Charity and some of our Young Ambassadors. 

This event will be a safe space to get to know new people with similar experiences, try something new and build your confidence.

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

Where is the event being held?

Clifford House, Ecclesall Road South, Sheffield, S11 9PX from 10.45am – 3.30pm.

Travelling in?

Clifford House is next to Whirlow Lane bus stop, served by the 81, 82, 271, 272 and 65. If you are driving or getting dropped off there is plenty of free parking at Clifford House and on Ecclesall Road South. 

If you would like to discuss support with travel please do get in touch with the Young Adults Team at The Brain Tumour Charity at YAS@thebraintumourcharity.org

If anyone's wondering whether to come, you don't need to be nervous, go into the event with an open heart and mind, we've all been in a similar situation and there's always someone around to support you if needed.

Please, try not to worry about…

  • Money. The day is free to attend and lunch will be provided free of charge.
  • 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, that's 100% okay!
  • Not being good at the activities. This is a relaxed space of supportive peers where it’s not the winning but the taking part (and having fun) that counts.
  • 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!

Please make sure you book your space in advance, so we know you'll be joining us. If you have any questions, or would like help to arrange travel, please contact the Young Adults Team on YAS@thebraintumourcharity.org
