About Seasons for Growth Waikato

Seasons for Growth is a peer support programme for young people aged 6-18 who are suffering grief and loss. This might be due to the death of a loved one; life-threatening illness of a parent or close relative; separation or divorce of parents; imprisonment of a parent or close family member; long-term placement with foster parents; migration or other circumstances.
Since its launch in 1996, Seasons for Growth programmes have reached more than 300,000 children, young people and adults across six countries, including New Zealand. It is an innovative, evidence based education programme which leads young people on a structured journey to explore feelings and develop sustainable coping strategies for grief and loss. The programme does not provide counselling or psychotherapy.
