Rainbows Bereavement Support GB
Our Rainbows programme provides an emotionally safe environment for our pupils to guide them through grieving a significant loss in their life, the impact of a death, relationship breakdown or other serious change in their lives.
Rainbows enables our children and young people to talk through their feelings with others who are experiencing similar situations. They are helped to articulate their feelings by a trained adult facilitator whom they know and trust. Rainbows uses age appropriate and loss related materials which form a structured 12 – 14 week programme. In helping our children through their grief Rainbows aims to supports self-esteem, trust, confidence and resilience, whilst promoting positive emotional/mental development and healthy relationships
Silver Linings: A Community Crisis Response Bereavement Support Programme – addressing the response to Covid -19
Natural disasters, such as floods, gales, fires, earthquakes or epidemic illness and human driven crises, such as terrorist attacks, loss of life through accidents, suicide, criminal acts or hostage situations, such Crisis Events can thrust people into painful circumstances so suddenly that whole communities grieve as one. When this happens, people become highly vulnerable and experience many emotions that they did not think they were capable of feeling, prior to the crisis event.
Adults who are straining to find answers may be able to cope by supporting each other and by finding ways to exist within this new reality and children will need support too. Rainbows Bereavement Support hopes that Silver Linings Community Crisis Response Programme will help fulfil some of the support needs of the children.
The Silver Linings Programme is an outlet for children in the form of a peer support, crisis response model based on six sessions in which participants share their personal stories, express their feelings, and reconcile the crisis event using their coping skills and move on to the future – knowing that they will be supported by adults who care for them. The closing session allows a participant to select a Personal Goal, which they can control and strive to achieve.
