Hospice Waikato is very well known throughout the region for high quality of care they deliver and the sheer volume of good work they do. They are also the body that governs Rainbow Place. We’re proud to be part of Hospice Waikato. Naturally, our services are available to children and young people who have a family member that is a Hospice patient.

Rainbow Place is thrilled to have a memorandum of understanding with this amazing New Zealand organisation. This national organisation, based in Wellington, provide tools and resources for helping children, young people and their families move forward through change, loss, trauma and grief - whatever the cause. Skylight has a huge, continuously evolving resource base in terms of training and education. They’re leaders in their field and we’re delighted to have them as partners.

Cancer Society of New Zealand
The Cancer Society is New Zealand’s leading advocacy agency for people affected by cancer. Parents and caregivers with a cancer diagnosis, benefit from the Cancer Society’s support services, and they in-turn can refer children and young people to Rainbow Place for support around the cancer diagnosis of the parent or caregiver.

Child Cancer Foundation
The Child Cancer Foundation is another well known and highly respected organisation that Rainbow Place works alongside. Together we support children and young people with a cancer diagnosis and their families. Our local Child Cancer Society branch very generously assisted us to furnish our ‘sleepover’ facility where sick children and their families can stay for a well deserved break from the ‘tough stuff’ they are facing. They are an outstanding organisation and we’re proud to be associated with them.
