Family support lies at the heart of all Rainbow Trust does. They care for families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness, providing bespoke emotional and practical support for the whole family, whenever and wherever it is needed. Today they are the only organisation that provides support directly to the whole family, helping them to keep hold of a normal life as much as possible. Rainbow Trust has nine teams of Family Support Workers who are there to help 24 hours a day from diagnosis, through treatment, and for some, through bereavement and beyond. They stay for as long as the family needs them.
