TRAINING UPDATE – JUNE 2020
Rainbows Ireland has started the process to have Rainbows Facilitator and Coordinator training available as online training. This decision has been taken in light of the ongoing health and safety advice as the country begins to open up.
Details of the training arrangements and how to apply will be posted on our website and social media platforms as soon as the training is available to start.
All current registered Rainbows centres will be notified of the new arrangements as soon as the training information is available.
This decision to have the Rainbows Facilitator training available online is a temporary response to the current pandemic situation.
Please be aware that applications for training are accepted from Registered Rainbows Programme Centres.
In order to register as a Rainbows Programme Centre, the Manager or Principal (known as the Centre Director) of the proposed centre is asked to attend an induction meeting in order to commence the registration process.
Please email email@example.com or Phone 01 – 4734175 to make enquiries or to register your interest in setting up a Rainbows Programme Centre.

The Aim of Rainbows
The service respects and values the diversity of all children and families. The Rainbows service is committed to maintaining a service that does not discriminate, directly or indirectly on the grounds of gender, gender identity, marital status, family status, sexual orientation, religious belief, political opinion, disability, age, race or ethnic origin. The service recognises that all children and young people, regardless of their circumstances, have a right to have their grief and loss recognised and to be given opportunities to express their feelings and emotions.
