Introducing Barretstown Live

Barretstown Live is........ Live!

Barretstown Live is........ Live!

Barretstown is very excited to announce the launch of ‘Barretstown Live’ – a new online interactive platform to Livestream Barretstown’s programmes to homes nationwide.

The COVID-19 crisis means that children with a serious illness like those who come to Barretstown, who are immune-compromised, are currently even more isolated. That also means they need Barretstown’s therapeutic programmes now more than ever.

We had to make the very difficult decision to postpone our Spring and Summer camps. But we are determined to keep the Barretstown magic alive. That’s why we have been very busy developing and launching our new Barretstown Live programmes. The Barretstown team have created a specially designed studio onsite to deliver these programmes.

Each Saturday, families from all over Ireland can attend a live, full-day broadcast with a schedule of fun and engaging activities catered for the enjoyment of the entire family. These programmes still meet all the aspects of our therapeutic programmes that make Barretstown so unique.
In advance of participating in these programmes, families will receive a ‘Barretstown Live’ kit which will contain everything they need to participate. The feedback from the families who have participated so far has been amazing, we can’t wait for this weekend!

And that’s not all… we have also been keeping the magic of Barretstown alive with families all over the world through Facebook live broadcasts, taking place every week with hours of live content, fun games and crazy activities. This has been a fantastic way to connect with campers, families, and volunteers from all over the world. Be sure to share the news with all your friends and families  and tune in to the Facebook fun.

We have also extended our hospitals' programme to bring some Barretstown magic to the children who are feeling the effects of COVID-19 restriction on visitors even more so than ever before. With playrooms closed and tighter restrictions around hospital movement, these children have been in desperate need for some serious play, which is exactly what our outreach team have been able to facilitate through the Barretstown Live initiative.

We need your support

Barretstown is doing everything it can to continue to support our campers and the children of Ireland in these very challenging times. The children Barretstown serves already suffer the effects of isolation due to the impact of a serious illness and the current situation is only making this worse. We need your help now more than ever as we work to roll out this new online platform, which will allow us to continue to deliver life-changing programmes to these children and their families  that need us most.
