The Rainbow Trust Children's Charity

About Us

Rainbow Trust Children's Charity provides emotional and practical support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness.

Our Vision is that one day all terminally ill children and their families will have access to a Rainbow Trust Children's Charity carer.

Our Values are:

We listen

We work in an inclusive way

We do the right thing

The Rainbow Trust Philosophy of care:

We are committed to providing the best care and service to all families referred for support. Our staff respect each family’s values, needs, resources and strengths.

We aim to develop a strong working partnership with families. Families can receive the support we provide in their home and in the local community, through a dedicated Family Support Worker.

In order to ensure that Rainbow Trust provides the highest standard of family care, we adhere to our philosophy of care which guides our practice.

The following statement describes the philosophy that underpins this commitment and describes the components of our family-led service:

Commitment and support

We are committed to providing a family centred service which is flexible, responding to the changing needs of families. Should a family become bereaved we will continue to support them for as long as they need us.

Working in partnership

We work in partnership with families to empower them to retain control in times of uncertainty, while acknowledging their right to privacy and choice. In order to provide a seamless service we work in partnership with other agencies.


Children and their families are respected and valued as individuals. We are committed to the promotion of equality for all. We respect and value different cultural, spiritual and religious beliefs and acknowledge the diversity of all people.
