RAINBOWS FOR THE CHILDREN OF AUSTRALIA

Rainbows for the Children of Australia, founded in 1983, is a grief-support, harm prevention charity for children, adolescents and adults who are confronting a significant loss or painful transition in their lives. ABN:36 081 250 142

Recognising that those in emotional pain, especially children and adults, need and deserve someone they can trust to guide them through the process of loss, Rainbows has developed peer-support programs that are led by a trained adult facilitator.

These peer support programs also include a harm prevention approach that addresses the areas of depression, loss and grief, family break-down , suicide prevention, deliberate self-harm and parenting skills.

What is the Rainbows Program?

Rainbows is a weekly peer support program for children and adults who are experiencing a significant life altering crisis or painful transition.

When something significant happens in a family, the whole family is affected, yet, because of age and short life experience, children find it difficult to verbalise their feelings.
