School Based Centres

School Based 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 school based Rainbows Programme:

Schools run the Rainbows programme for the pupils of their own school only, unless it is stated otherwise below on the list. If your child’s school is not listed below, please visit our Public Centres page to find your nearest available centre  click here for Public Centres.

Please note that the Rainbows programme is generally delivered once in each academic year (usually starting in Oct/Nov) and is not available on an ongoing basis throughout the year.
