Biographical Info

Seasons for Growth is one of the services that the Bishops Action Foundation provides in supporting the wellness of children and youth and is the only intervention of its type offered in the Taranaki region.

It is a peer support programme for children and young people from the ages of 5-17 experiencing severe grief or loss caused by separation of parents, death, serious illness or imprisonment of a parent or close relative or a period of foster care.

As well as providing the 9 week programme for children and youth, Seasons also provides a 4 week programme for those siblings or children/youth who have a whānau member who is suffering from a long term illness or health issue that has brought significant change to the young person’s life.

Parent programmes are also available which enables parents/caregivers to understand their child’s journey while participating in the programme.
Referrals are made by any parent/whānau, schools, health professionals and social services.
