Breakaway family activity weekends are a unique opportunity for children to socialise and take part in confidence building activities (examples include raft building, wall climbing, zip wires, activity courses). Set in residential locations, including accommodation, all meals and all activities, they are designed around the family so the children can mix and play together (siblings included) whilst parents can chat with other parents and share their experiences - this alone can relieve that feeling of isolation to know that there are many others who are going through something similar or something that someone else understands.
Activity weekends are run by trained instructors using appropriate safety equipment. A stoma care nurse will also be in attendance during the weekend.
Funding may be available from Breakaway for those families that require assistance in meeting the costs of the weekend.
A payment plan is available to help spread the cost of the weekends. Please contact us for more details.
CHEQUES: Please make any cheques for donations, booking deposits etc payable to 'The Breakaway Foundation'
