The right help at the right time in the right way

Each year, many children and young people in New Zealand are emotionally impacted by events that cause significant change, loss or grief in their lives.

Children and young people’s loss and grief can impact their later lives considerably; affecting learning, social interactions, health, self-esteem, future relationships and life choices. Significant loss is very often evident in the backgrounds of youth involved in substance abuse, youth offending or suicide.

Skylight responds to this by supporting children, young people, their families, whānau, and friends to navigate through times of trauma, loss, and grief by building resilience.
