Rainbow Trust Children's Charity

Founded in 1986, Rainbow Trust supports families who have a child diagnosed with a life threatening or terminal illness. Rainbow Trust Essex is one of nine care teams around the UK currently supporting 2000 families per year. The Essex team of Family Support Workers work in all areas of Havering. Rainbow Trust exists to support the whole family, providing practical and emotional support for as long as we are needed. This may include transport to and from hospital visits or appointments, attending medical consultations to help interpret and record complex conversations, caring for siblings, offering respite or domestic support whatever is most needed at any given time to ease the load. Importantly, our help continues until we are no longer needed. Our Family Support Workers also provide bereavement support, which can be invaluable for families at a time when others don't know what to say or how to help.
