‘Lean On Me’ offers Support to Teens with Serious Illness in the Family

‘Lean On Me’ offers Support to Teens with Serious Illness in the Family

The Transition Year Group from Our Lady of Lourdes School, New Ross

The Transition Year Students in Our Lady Of Lourdes Secondary School, Rosbercon, New Ross, Co.Wexford contacted us to tell us about their Young Social Innovators project, titled ‘Lean On Me’.

For our Young Social Innovator project we chose Support as our topic. Our aim in this project was to provide support for young people with family members who have a serious illness. We chose this project because it was very close to our heart. We found that one of our classmates mother was ill and she noticed there was no specific national or international support group for teens going through something like this.

They’ve produced a booklet designed to help people whose loved ones have a serious illness. It’s available to download below, or you can visit the Lean On Me website.
