Support families who have a sick child

Last year, Rainbow Trust supported 140 single parent families.

In most cases, when a child becomes ill, a network of family members and friends become a support team for worried, exhausted parents and siblings.  Parents, especially single parents without this support network often face increase financial strain, uncertainty about the future, social isolation and fatigure.

Rainbow Trust is committed to supporting families who may not have access to other networks of support.  Looking after a child with a life threatening or terminal illness can be a very isolating and lonely experience.  Rainbow Trust understands that needing someone to talk to doesn't always happen during "working hours".  A Rainbow Trust Family Support Worker is available to provide emotional and practical support 24 hours a day.
