ABOUT RAINBOW TRUST
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 perform a role most people couldn’t imagine. 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.
Rainbow Trust relies heavily on voluntary donations and through the generosity of their supporters they currently help around 2,220 families a year. Their vision is that one day all terminally ill children will have access to a Rainbow Trust Family Support Worker.
