Rainbow Trust provides emotional and practical support to families whose son or daughter is affected by a life threatening or terminal illness. 

Family support is available to all families whose son or daughter is affected by a life threatening illness.  This includes parents, carers, the unwell child, brothers, sisters, grandparents and help with extended family members to support each other.

Age range: 0 – 18:

Any family can receive support from the point of their child / young person’s diagnosis, (including antenatal and neonatal periods when diagnosis has been made) and support with young people during transition towards adult services up to the age of 18.

Eligibility:

Rainbow Trust describes life threatening conditions as those for which curative treatment may be feasible but might fail, for example cancer or irreversible organ failure.

Severe neurological conditions may also be deemed life threatening once their cumulative effects cause weakness and susceptibility to major health complications. 

Please see attached file for description of services and outcomes for families.
