Parents Group


Our Rainbow Place Parents and Caregivers morning tea is an informal gathering of those with children and young people receiving the support of Rainbow Place.

This group provides parents and caregivers the ideal place to share similar experiences in a supportive environment amongst friends who can truly relate to situations regarding children and young people living with life-limiting/life threatening conditions.

The journey when caring for a child or young person who is unwell can often be isolating. Rainbow Place hosts the morning tea for parents and carers to connect, share stories, wisdom and support each other.

Sometimes we are lucky enough to have special visitors such as Marjorie - our friend from Canine Friends Pet Therapy.

Our facilities are wheelchair friendly and children and young people, including siblings are welcome to attend.

Hosted in the Rainbow Place Studio
Hospice Waikato - 334 Cobham Drive
Hillcrest, Hamilton
Time: Tuesday 10.30am – 12.30pm.

Even if you are only able to make it for an hour, please come along. There is plenty of parking available onsite.

The morning tea is held monthly and we like to introduce themes, activities and special treats throughout the year when possible.
