About the host organisation

Hosted by: Finding Rainbows
Organisation Profile: We are a local bereavement support group in Tameside. Primarily we support individuals and families who have suffered the loss of a child. This includes children of all ages and early pregnancy loss and babies born asleep. We offer one to one and group support via a range of forums and activities and are able to help families in other areas of their life which they may be struggling with as a result of their loss such as debt, ill health and family life. We work closely with other community groups and agencies to ensure the best possible care is available for our families. We are passionate about health awareness and prevention and run community based training and events to promote safety, health and wellbeing.
