Schools Awareness Programme

Home | Education & Awareness | Schools Awareness Programme

Breast Cancer Ireland’s mandate, in addition to providing funding to support pioneering research, is to provide education and awareness on the importance of breast health amongst women of all ages, with a particular focus on younger women. Our outreach nurses assist in educating young women on the importance of breast health, making them more breast aware and knowing from a younger age what is and isn’t normal. If an irregularity is detected, it can be examined early, with the outcome far more positive.

Breast Cancer Ireland believe that TY is an ideal time to educate young women about their breast health. The TY Schools Awareness Programme, proudly supported by Cornmarket Financial Services, is tailored to promote good breast health, taking the fear out of a breast cancer diagnosis, and educating young women about how to perform a self-breast examination.
