Rainbow Trust Children s Charity
We are the leading organisation providing emotional and practical support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness
No parent should outlive their child
We believe that families should not have to cope alone. Our Family Support Workers provide support to the whole family 24/7, for as long as they need it.
We are there for as long as is needed
From diagnosis through treatment and beyond, we are there every step of the way. Help us be there for more families.
