About

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity is the leading charity in England providing bespoke emotional and practical support direct to families who have a seriously ill child. There is no other organisation that provides the range of services that we do. Rainbow Trust Family Support Workers support the whole family, from their child’s diagnosis, during treatment and, if needed, through bereavement and beyond.

The volunteer driver role is an exciting opportunity for adults who would like to be involved in providing a much needed, practical support for Rainbow Trust children’s charity. Rainbow Trust values the wisdom of its volunteers and the wealth of knowledge coming from their personal or professional experiences which they can share with the local community.
