Our Rainbows programme aims to support and care for any of our children who have experienced a difficult loss or separation. Each session is designed to give children an opportunity to talk, reflect and offer advice within the group. The programme allows children the chance to share experiences with each other in a safe, confidential environment and understand that they aren’t alone in their feelings. Children complete activities in their personal journals, which are only shared when children are comfortable. Staff who run the programme have all had appropriate training and at the end of the programme, all staff and children involved in Rainbows participate in a ‘Celebrate Me’ Day to acknowledge the progress and the new friendships made in the group.
Rainbows is an international program. You can learn more on their website here: https://rainbows.org/
