In a nutshell
Rainbow Trust supports families who have a child aged 0-18 years with a life-threatening or terminal illness and need the bespoke support we offer.
Today there are an estimated 49,000 children and young people in the UK living with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition who may require palliative care (University of Leeds, 2011). Many of these children and their families are able to cope or are not in a ‘crisis situation’. However, thousands of families have to face the very real possibility that their child may die and struggle to cope on a day to day basis.
