Rainbows 9 week programme

rainbows

Rainbows Ireland is a free, listening, peer, group support service that provides support for children from the age of 7, after they have experienced a Parental Separation and or Bereavement. 

When significant change and loss happens in a family, the entire family can be affected including children. Children generally find it difficult to understand their feelings and often do not have the words to say how they feel. 

Rainbows provides group support for children of a similar age and loss experience. Meeting others in a similar situation can be very supportive for children. 

Rainbows is not a counselling group or professional therapy.

Bush Post Primary School provides this service to children attending our school.

Staff at our school have undertaken the training to become a Rainbows Volunteer Facilitator. 

If you would like more information on the Rainbows service and its programmes, please visit www.rainbowsireland.ie 

Normally the programme will run for 9 weeks, for an hour each week after school.
