To be able to provide a monthly support group for young adults aged between 16 - 25 years who have been bereaved of a parent or sibling.

by Emma Gilead in Milton Keynes, England, United Kingdom

Harry’s Rainbow recognised the need for extending support to young adults up to the age of 25 years old when the teenagers attending the Rainbow Groups were expressing the need for such a space as they got older. The Rainbow groups are designed to facilitate contact between bereaved children of all ages and their families. Young people attending and aged over 12 years have a separate space to sit together and undertake separate activities and discussions.

We are delighted that with the help of some of the young people who were growing out of the youth group, we will soon be ready to provide a service to young people and adults wanting this extended support.

Planning for the Young Adult Support group has been undertaken by a small steering group of young adults including the Youth Group Ambassador Jessica (Harry’s twin sister) and Annalise from YiS who has regularly attended and supported the group with wellbeing activities. The members of the planning group have a range of experience they feel will help progress the group, particularly that they have all suffered a bereavement themselves and accessed various bereavement support services with Harry’s Rainbow and other local organisations.

So far the group have agreed their commitments and plan for the group to be available on a monthly basis, in the evening, at a central location.
