Children & Young People

Children with alopecia and their families can join us for a trip to Indirock for an afternoon of climbing!

This event is suitable for children ages 6 - 14. Due to strict capacities at this event, there is a maximum of 1 child with alopecia and 1 sibling per booking. Parents (or additional siblings) will be spectating.

If your child is outside of this age bracket and would be interested in attending please get in touch with [email protected] to discuss further. 

Meet-up Details 

Indirock instructors will take you through a variety of warm ups, games and an introduction to climbing which is suitable to the age and abilities of the group. They may need parents to help supervise. The instructors will give those parents a full supervisor induction before starting, which takes about 10 minutes.

At the end of the session there will be some light refreshments provided in the cafe. 

There is a multi-storey car park on top of Victoria Plaza, or a street car park next to it called Essex Street Surface Carpark.

      Sessional Worker Details 

      Your Alopecia UK sessional worker for this event is Gemma (pictured to the right)

      "Hi I'm Gemma, I have a daughter who was diagnosed with Alopecia at the age of 4. I became an Alopecia UK support group leader in 2018 when I started the first Essex support group for children with alopecia and their families. I signed up to help with these sessional events to ensure even more opportunities for families to meet up in our local area! We can now share our knowledge and support, and learn more from all the others that we meet on this journey."
