Rainbow Trust supports families who have a child aged 0-18 years with a life threatening or terminal illness and need bespoke support.
There are an estimated 49,000 children in the UK living with a life limiting or life threatening condition who may require palliative care. Many of these children and their families have to face the very real possibility that their child may die and struggle to cope on a day-to-day basis.
Our Family Support Workers provide a lifeline to these families and children. We support the whole family including parents, carers, the unwell child, brothers, sisters and grandparents. They bring support and help to families who so desperately need it at home, in hospital and in the community.
From a taxi ride to and from hospital appointments, to precious time with the families' children, to bereavement support - your support makes an incredible difference to families when they need it the most.
