CLIMB – Children’s Lives Include Moments of Bravery

What is CLIMB®?

CLIMB® is a programme for children aged 5—11 years old whose parent or a significant other (e.g. grandparent, aunt or sibling) in their life has a cancer diagnosis.

CLIMB® is run over 6 weeks and held in the evenings. It’s an enjoyable, sharing, interactive experience and a time for the children to come together to deal with their feelings. Throughout the programme the children will develop an understanding of cancer and from this the myths and fears that children can hold about cancer will be dispelled. The groups are creative, using drama, arts and play. They are based on having fun together and meeting new friends.

Parents / carers attending with their children will have the opportunity to chat and relax in an adjoining room.
