Re-Fresh: Young Person's Peer Support Group
The Re-Fresh Peer Support group meets Wednesdays from 6.15 – 7.30 at Slynedales. The group is for young people aged 12 to 17 years affected by cancer or bereavement through any reason.
This means that if a friend or family member has cancer or someone close to you dies we can support you.
We come together in a safe, non-judgemental space and sessions are led by young people who are fully trained Peer Supporters. The aim the sessions include a variety of activities including listening to music, playing games and being creative with the aim of having fun, building friendships and boosting confidence.
Young people also have the option of sharing their stories and experiences to enlighten and support other members.
On occasion we also like to adventure out into the community to escape the stress of home life and over the summer we organise an exciting program of activities and trips.
Re-Fresh is part of our Children and Young Person's Service which provides counselling and play therapy for young people affected by cancer and bereavement, either themselves of in their family.
