Introducing our 2024/2025 charity partners... 

April - Rainbow Trust

Provides support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. When a child has a serious illness, family life is turned upside down and time becomes more precious than ever. Life as the family knew it is shattered into a million pieces and many families struggle to cope.

Rainbow Trust pairs each family with an expert Family Support Worker, who provides tailored practical and emotional support for families in whatever way they need, for however long is needed. This support varies hugely, depending on the family’s needs, ranging from driving families to vital hospital appointments, organising fun days out for siblings, or simply listening to a parent’s fears and anxieties about their child’s condition.

Rainbow Trust Family Support Workers provide a lifeline to those families going through the unimaginable.
