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. Our Family Support Workers care for the whole family, from their child’s diagnosis, during treatment and, if needed, through bereavement and beyond.

Rainbow Trust values the wisdom of and the wealth of knowledge of volunteers coming from their life or professional experiences which can be shared with the local community.
