Rainbow Trust Children's Charity

Providing emotional and practical support for the families of critically ill children

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity provides emotional and practical support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. Their help is immediate and available for families 24 hours a day, providing the whole family with tailored high quality support for as long as they need it.

This support comes from Family Support Workers who become a trusted part of the family providing help wherever and whenever it is needed, without fail. They maintain a sense of normality for the family by helping with hospital trips, performing household duties, taking the siblings to school and in many cases providing care during the final stages of a child’s life, helping with funeral arrangements and bereavement support. A Rainbow Family Support Worker can be the difference between coping with the serious illness of your child, and your family falling apart.

Rainbow Trust relies almost entirely on voluntary donations and through the generosity of their supporters they currently help around 1,300 families a year. Their vision is that one day all terminally ill children will have access to a Rainbow Family Support Worker.
