About Us

 

Rainbow Place... Our People, Our Purpose

Rainbow Place is New Zealand's only specialist children's and young person's Hospice service.

It is where children, young people and their families/whānau can find care and support throughout this most difficult time.

We offer compassionate care and support, tailored specifically to you and your child's needs.

Please watch our short introductory video below to find out more about Rainbow Place.

We recognise that caring for a child with a life limiting illness changes a family’s life forever.

Your Rainbow Place team will be with you as you undertake this journey, offering advice and support as you require. This can include the management of symptoms and care coordination with all the various professionals involved in your child's care.

Our team will advocate for your family to have the support required to be able to enhance the time your family has together.

We visit in your home, hospitals and community (e.g. schools, marae) and coordinate the care of your child, working with all health care professionals involved while acknowledging that parents and caregivers know the child best.
