Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity
Caring for families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness
Set up in 1986, Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity offer the whole family individually tailored, high quality support through their eight teams of Family Support Workers. They aim to maintain a sense of normality and keep families together by ensuring help is provided not only to the sick child but also anxious parents, grandparents and worried brothers and sisters. Rainbow Trust offers support at any stage of illness, from diagnosis, during treatment and throughout bereavement.
Very importantly, there is no time limit to the care they provide. Rainbow Trust will stay with a family until they feel that they can cope without their support, sometimes for several years after a child has died. Pennies donations have made a real difference to Rainbow Trust, helping pay for days, and even months, of Family Support Worker visits for families like the Khans and the Morrises.
