Information about the organisation:

Charitable objectives:
OUR VISION:  One day all terminally ill children and their families will have access to a Rainbow Trust Carer.
MISSION:  Rainbow Trust provides emotional and practical support for families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.
OUR USP: We offer the whole family individually tailored, high quality support for as long as they need it.

Main activities of the organisation
Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity supports families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. For these families, life is unthinkably tough. Their lives are shattered into a million pieces as they struggle to cope with the possibility that their child might die.
Rainbow Trust Family support workers provide individually tailored support to help families navigate through this period of great stress and uncertainty.   Each family is designated their own Family Support Worker who provides emotional support to help them face each day, as  well as helping with the practicalities of taking care of the sick child and siblings, helping with house work and transporting families to hospital.   We provide help however and whenever a family needs it most.
Some families are supported a few times each week, some call us as and when they feel in need, and everything in between. From supporting in the home, at hospital when children receive treatment, to being there for the whole family if a child dies.
