Rainbows is a national children’s voluntary service with an average of 8,000 children and young people coming into the service every year throughout Ireland.
Rainbows supports children and young people in groups. There are groups for children and young people who have been affected by the death of a close family member and there are groups for children and young people whose family has changed because their parents have separated or divorced.
The Rainbows service
Rainbows is a limited voluntary service. It is not therapy, professional counselling or clinical professional support (If a child is attending other professional services permission must be sought for them to attend Rainbows). Rainbows is a listening service for children and young people struggling to come to terms with significant loss and change in their lives.
