Public Centres

All Rainbows Group Programmes are currently postponed

Some training sessions and Rainbows groups had to stop mid-training and mid-programme. We are currently consulting with other bereavement services and our own clinical support team to produce a set of guidelines for centres around the best approaches to adopt to resume / complete those programmes once we are returning to normal, post corona virus closures.

These guidelines will issue once they are completed.

Select your County below to find your nearest public Rainbows centre.

Please note that the Rainbows programme is delivered once in each academic year (usually starting in Oct/Nov) and is not available on an ongoing basis throughout the year. It is best to contact the centre directly to find out local arrangements.
