For Kids

Sometimes our kids need some specific help for them. The following services are offered by Catholic Social Services to support our children live life well

Counselling for Children

It can often be quite helpful for children to have a safe place to talk about what is going on for them. CSS has counsellors in Dunedin that are experienced in helping kids make sense of what is happening and how to get through. All counselling with children will be in consultation with the adults in their life to ensure that this service provides great outcomes for them.

This service is also available in schools in the Dunedin Catholic Kahui Ako, South Otago, Maniatoto Area School and some other schools in Dunedin.


Seasons for Growth

Making sense of life changes is important for everybody. This group programme especially for children can help kids understand what is going on for them when there is significant change or loss. Seasons for Growth is a well established programme designed by Good Grief Australia and more information can be found by visiting their site found here
