RAINBOWS is a peer support programme for children and adults who have experienced death, divorce, separation and abandonment.
The Publicity and Community Involvement Programme is a programme to enhance the awareness of our services and
programmes for single-parent families and the public, and to facilitate the participation of the community to assist us in our programmes. Find out the organizations involved and how to volunteer with us.
Casework and counselling for single parent families are provided to help them cope with their bereavement, divorce, desertion or separation. The main focus is to facilitate their emotional recovery from the loss. They are also assisted in dealing with other issues arising out of the divorce, separation or death of the spouse/ parent in the family.
This is an awareness programme through talks, workshops and symposiums, parents and members of the public will be more aware of the issues faced by single-parent families. The programme also aims to equip single parents with skills and knowledge for self-development and parenting.
This programme aims to provide opportunities for interaction among single-parent families to widen their support network. Through organised activities like family outings, workshops and sharing sessions, single parents and children will find greater emotional comfort from one another and learn better coping skills to their life changes.
