Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity
Rainbow Trust, provides a bespoke, high quality service to families who have a seriously ill child. We offer much needed respite and support to the whole family, including parents, carers, the unwell child, brothers, sisters and grandparents. Rainbow Trust bring support and help to families who so desperately need it at home, in hospital and in the community.
Our care team give practical and emotional support when it is needed, filling the gaps between hospital, hospice and home. This support helps families to better cope with the challenging situations they are facing – especially now.
Many families caring for a seriously ill child are feeling even more isolated and forgotten. Isolation and loneliness are all too familiar feelings for these families. Now, as the world moves towards a new ‘normal’ and restrictions ease, these some of families face a worse situation than they were in before.
For those continuing to shield or self-isolate, Family Support Workers have continued to carry out vital practical tasks such as shopping and medication collection to support these most vulnerable families in the way they need it most.
