Other Support Groups

Organisations which currently locate their meetings in the Pastoral Outreach Centre include:

Rainbows

Rainbows is a free, voluntary service for children and young people experiencing loss following bereavement and parental separation. It provides a safe setting in which children can share their feelings, emotions and struggles with others who have similar experiences. They are supported in this process by a trained facilitator. Rainbows uses materials such as journals, story books, games and activities which forms a structured programme to lead the children gently through the grieving process.

This support programme is free of charge. Please visit www.rainbowsireland.ie for more information.
