Childhood stops for seriously ill children.

At Barretstown we Press Play.

Barretstown offers free therapeutic programmes at our unique specially designed campus in Co. Kildare and through outreach programmes in schools and hospitals throughout Ireland, for children and their families living with a serious

When a child is seriously ill, their life becomes about everything they can’t do anymore, and they can stop feeling like a regular child. Even when they physically start to get better, the psychological scars of their illness, or that of their siblings, can remain, eroding confidence, diminishing self-esteem, and coping skills.

Barretstown empowers and encourages each child to step out of their comfort zone and re-build their confidence through our medically endorsed therapeutic programmes. They start to discover the magic of being a child again.

Hospitals treat the illness. Barretstown treats the child.
