Grief and Loss Support Services - Auckland

Providing a range of grief education programmes that build resilience and wellbeing. 


The Grief and Loss Support Services Committee of the Anglican Diocese of Auckland exists to support the delivery of the Seasons for Growth programme under licence to the NZ Seasons for Growth Licencing Council, Wellington. GALSS currently supports seven local committees associated with ministry units, or groups of ministry units, at Howick, Pukekohe, Onehunga, Central West, North Shore, Warkworth-Wellsford and Tairua.

Much of the work is with the widely recognized Seasons for Growth programmes, which focus on peer support for children, young people and their families, at times of loss.  Local committees, Co-ordinators and trained volunteer Companions provide Seasons for Growth programmes in their community with the support of the Auckland Grief and Loss Support Services Fieldworker
