Rainbow Trust Children's Charity provides practical and emotional support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. For those families life can be unthinkably tough. We have teams of Family Support Workers across England who help families however they may need it; whether it be around the house, in the hospital, or collecting siblings from school. We are contactable 24 hours a day via our helpline for families in crisis and we are there from diagnosis, through treatment and even after bereavement and beyond.
Since Rainbow Trust was first founded in 1986, we have been able to help thousands of families. We rely almost entirely on voluntary donations, and in the past year we have been able to help over 2000 families in so many different ways.
Some of those families have shared their stories in short videos that are available on Youtube. In these clips they talk about the difference that Rainbow Trust has made to their lives. These really help us to raise our profile and tell more people about the work we do.
